Yellena James – Creative artworks

Yellena James grew up and attended art school in Sarajevo. At the age of 18 she moved to the U.S. After gaining her BA in painting and graphic design at UCF, she eventually made her way to Portland, OR.

Preferring pens, inks, markers and acrylics, she combines complex abstract forms into dazzling images which take on lives of their own. Her colorful arrangements of organic shapes and tangled lines are at once floral and alien, organic and sci-fi. Each intimate world she creates seems to posses its own ethos and its own special ability to radiate emotion.

James has participated in shows around the U.S., as well as overseas, including: solo exhibitions at Giant Robot (San Francisco and Los Angeles, CA), the Here Gallery (Bristol, UK), the Grassy Knoll (Portland, OR) and more. She also has done illustration work for Anthropologie, Nike, K2 Snowboards and many others.

    Do you give lessons anywhere. I am fan of Zentangle and I do a lot of decorative painting. I fell in love with the combinations of you materials in you work.
    I have you book and and trying to get the hang of the drawings. I get confused with which layers come first. Thus I was wondering about lessons.
