Artist of the Day…Alena Hennessy

Today’s artist is Alena Hennessy – an ethereal and earthy artist whose work I love for it’s whimsy and natural content. Hennessey’s aesthetic is simple, still, peaceful, and quiet and I love that sense that she conveys through her pieces which feature bunnies, owls, trees, and meadows. She’s always been enthralled with the natural world and that definitely comes through in her work. She’s also eco-friendly which I throughly applaud and has created works on bamboo paper and organic cotton. She also creates totes and tees using her prints and organic cottons and she also has sculpted pieces as well.

I would really love to own one of these. Especially one with an owl. Amazing work!
