I believe the ability to perceive beauty brings inner peace and clarity. Beauty, truth and goodness are one. Creation is possible when peace is attained within. When that happens, it can manifest itself without in various ways, including art. As John Updike said: The artist brings something into the world that did not exist before, and they do it without destroying anything else. The art that has been created does even more. It transforms everything around it with its energy. It heals.” Lena Owens/OLena Art

Lena Owens is an artist, contemporary, internationally known, impressionist from Colorado. Lena is ethnic Lithuanian with Lithuanian and Finns roots born in Moscow and currently residing in Colorado who claims herself more of a self-taught artist and that is always eager to learn something new, she loves playing and experimenting with fresh ideas. Her philosophy and worldview developed through observation, reading and learning. Her family traditions takes roots in Lithuanian ancestry with it's character, tales, myths and fables, which common to all European nations with it's magical and spiritual accent on connection with nature, compassion to all living things and harmonious cooperation and interaction with outside world and it's Universal Laws. In such fables, God often visits people to guide them in moral quests, and when people are not able to recognize Him because they lost connection with their inner voice, intuition and insights in order to live right and act morally in the presence of God, comes recognition of urgent necessity to heal, to reconnect with that inner light, which require individual, inner journey to re-unite with the Whole-Holy. To heal means to to be whole again, to be Holy. Language is full of wisdom. Roots of words have access to that stored collective wisdom. The soul has memory and the heart has connection to it. Folklore, myths, symbols and tales, language, words, visual art are like beacons In our journey. Lena's intense interest in art traces back from her father, a still life and nature painter which also happens to be an independent writer and a philosopher and his style and talents developed under the influence of traditional Russian academic art training. Who has been a mentor and art teacher in her life and who by the way is still her source of inspiration. Her further intrinsic talents were molded during her formal art education through correspondence courses in Moscow Art Academy. These talents were harnessed through reading, meditation, observation and practice. From her works, one can see that the inner vitality gives her the power to act, thereby, transforming that energy into a form of art, the final form she fondly names wall décor. Lena recognizes the existence of an inner world where all creativity is born and where is she finds her freedom, happiness and joy. With her Creation is possible when peace and harmony is attained within. She believes that the ability to perceive beauty brings inner peace and clarity. When that happens, it can manifest itself outward in various ways, including art. John Updike once said, the artist brings something into the world that did not exist before, and they do it without destroying anything else. With that idea, the art that has been created does even more than bring joy. With its energy, it transforms everything around it. It heals. She Lena does her artworks; she does not perceive herself as a creator but more of a conductor of tools to transform the inner perception to outer creations because there is no ‘ME’ in creation according to her. When there is inner peace, joy, and beauty, it quickly manifests itself in creation. Her stimulation as an artist is solely on her ability to hear the inner call and interpret it with colors using the art language—colors, shapes, perfume and energetic fields. Lena works and became confident with different techniques; she paints with oil, palette knifes and sometimes create Fresco-Secco artwork which give antique look to her paintings and also takes a lot of time and effort. As a result of the much needed effort and time needed, she seldom works with frescoes but when she does it comes out unique and antique looking paintings, which will be described in #3 booklet. She is also a photographer learning a lot from the local Camera Photo Club that encourages healthy competitions twice a month. We are learning together how to use cameras and that wonderful tool called Photoshop. She photographs nature, landscapes, macro shorts and panoramas as well, which she creates from multiple shots stitched together. Lena Owens draws her deep artistic qualities from raw emotional positivity that reflects into her work. .
