More About Lena Kolambet

Question IconWhat inspires you?

My art is a reflection of my emotions and thoughts on events in people's lives.

Question IconDescribe your creative process.

I always start “painting” in my thoughts. I try to write down a thought or an idea in a workbook right away. Sometimes, I sketch. Then I think about details, colors, and so on. Chores can definitely distract me from the creative process, but music always helps to lift my spirits. I choose a tune that sounds good at that particular moment and it puts me in the right state of mind. Sometimes, I just need to sit in silence and listen to my inner voice.
