This section of the site is about me, Lena Nechet.

Formal and professional information about Lena Nechet.

Testimonials about me by people I respect and value, with references.

I am deeply thankful to each person here for taking the time to write these words.

Informal and personal information about me.

Being an artist almost requires from me to be sincere in my self-presentation. Being mysterious would probably be much more attractive and safe, but I want you to understand my art better by knowing how I see myself and the world, and what influenced me.

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, I will try to tell you enough about myself.

My friends can pick here one or another fun fact about me as well, if I have not joked about it already. Observations of entrusted people who had connected the dots for me from a different angle helped me to understand myself many times, and writing about key moments of the past had being interesting as well.

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

Thank you for your attention!

Family, birthplace, circumstances.

I care about my origins very little, but changing cultures taught me that people like to check where you come from to reduce their own barrier from your strangeness, and I am all for it.
