Yellena James

Introducing Etsy best-seller, Yellena James' beautiful floral world, with intricate lines undulating, flaring, jammed thick and twisted together to form inimitable flora. I can just imagine Yellena at her canvas filling in line after line meditatively, compulsively. There is something so organic and lush about her work.

Yellena says on her Etsy Profile : "I'm an artist/illustrator residing in beautiful Portland, OR.
My work has been described as "colorful arrangements of organic shapes and tangled lines (which) are at once floral and alien, organic and sci-fi, crafty and fantastic." Within each piece I try to create an intimate world that posesses its own ethos and its own emotional range.


Yellena in collaboration with Schoolhouse Electric for these pretty lamps
I love the white print!







The 2010 calender Yellena version

And some yummy resin coated prints- Yellena says the application was tricky - you bet. I tried it on one of my trays & I thought I almost ruined it! But the glossy effect is totally worth the angst.
