Olena McMurtrey is a contemporary artist based in California and specializing in cityscapes, seascapes, and landscapes. Olena lived in several large cities on both sides of the world and finally settled in California. The inspiration to furthering art education came while the artist lived in Los Angeles and later she completed the Master of Fine Arts at the Academy of Art University, San Francisco.
Olena always experimenting and playing with many mediums to find the exact tool to express her creativity and voice. She enjoys feeling thickness and heavy flow of oil, acrylic, and resin: these mediums are so different and alike at the same time. The biggest challenge for the artist is to find a unique mix of colors to achieve depth and vibration in her paintings.
