Informational part of the site, primarily textual and verbal information: articles, talks, posts, services, etc.

I like to keep only a few chosen art materials, compactly organized, to have space to start working on a large painting at any time, and daylight - natural or artificial - at any time.


I move my easel around all the time by grabbing the large support boards I use it it, and after several hours it tires out my back, in addition to manipulating big brushes and large cotton surfaces.

The lightweight gatorfoam-board practically solves this problem. I would prefer it to have a less porous surface though, it stains easily (mine is white).

My life is a bit easier now with two of these - one in imperial size, one in half.

General personal information about Lena Nechet.

Short records, facts, events, and summaries of my life.

I cannot tell you everything that's important because I need to guard other people's privacy, avoid unnecessary blissful or dreadful details, and keep the stories short.

As an artist, I want to be sincere and open in my self-presentation. Being mysterious could probably be more attractive, but I want you to understand my art better by knowing how I see myself and the world, and what influenced me.

Also, my students are often very open with me, they invite me in their homes and mention personal matters. To match that friendliness, and to make it easier for you to decide whether you want to deal with me.

My friends can pick here one or another fun fact about me as well, if I have not joked about it already.
