Yellena James

Yellena grew up and attended art school in war-torn Sarajevo, moved to the U.S. when she was 18, and continued to pursue her study of art and design. In her artwork, she combines complex abstract forms into images that take on lives of their own.

Her colourful arrangements of organic shapes and tangled lines are at once floral and alien, organic and sci-fi, crafty and fantastic. The Oregon-based artist doesn't pinpoint specific inspiration, but believes that her work reflects "places, things, dreams, and a desire to define beauty and spark imagination.
