Yellena James is an artist/illustrator currently living in Portland, OR. Preferring pens, inks, and acrylics, she combines complex abstract forms into dazzling images which take on lives of their own. Her colorful arrangements of organic shapes and tangled lines are at once floral and alien, organic and sci-fi. Each intimate world she creates seems to posses its own ethos and its own special ability to radiate emotion.
James has participated in shows around the U.S. and overseas. She also has done illustration work for La Mer, L 'Oreal, Anthropologie, Crabtree and Evelyn, Crate and Barrel, Relativity Media and many others.
