Alena graduated from the University of Guelph with a degree in Studio Art in April 2011. She currently works and lives in Whitehorse, Yukon.
Alena became interested in fabric patterns when she began sewing and knitting as a child. Since then she has worked to incorporate patterning and fabric design into other art forms. Many of the patterns in Alena's pieces are derived from clothing from her childhood.
Alena has experimented with many different print techniques but has been able to work with subject matter from her paintings. Many of her prints are patterns that she created based on influences from various life experiences.
