Another fantastic, new artist to welcome to the storm of art, Yelena Joy is painter, author and art coach. These words seem to best sum up Yelena's view of what art means to her:
"What I like about art is creation and transformation. I can see how a blank piece of paper transforms into a new painting or pieces of material create a unique quilt. Creating art is such a close metaphor for creating life. We create ourselves every day and transform our lives as we choose to."
