But it was only the beginning. She has always been fascinated by the elements of nature and how this nature is represented in art by other cultures.

This style would represent her life experiences and would showcase a world without boundaries. Most of her artworks are in the mixed media style. Mainly, AV is working with water color, ink, silver or gold leaf on paper. Such an interesting combination of media gives her an opportunity to create layering texture and unique style in her artwork. AV's focus is primarily nature. A key source of inspiration for Alena is Vincent Van Gogh, and his quote, “I dream my painting and then I paint my dream...” represents the verbal expression of her work.
