Yellena James is an artist and graphic designer born in 1977 in Sarajevo. At the age of 18 she moved to the United States. She gained her BA in Graphic Design and Painting at University of Central Florida. Yellena creates multi-layered compositions of microscopic worlds. They are full of vivid and detailed elements that transform into exquisitely chaotic structures. She likes to work primarily in pen, ink and marker combined with opaque watercolours. “I attempt to create an ethereal place which is hypnotically familiar and yet hauntingly exotic,” says she.
