Beauty, Miracles And Wonder – Homage To Ireland
Lena was born in Sweden 1964 and grew up in Smålandsstenar, a small town in the South West of county Småland, the cultural variety was quite scarce, and though always aware of her artistic talent, she didn’t fully open up to it until after moving to Ireland in 1998. With no formal training Lena paints purely from intuition, transferring on to canvas an imprint of a memory, a short glimpse of a moment experienced, with the Irish landscape as her greatest inspiration. Her work can be found in private collections in Sweden, UK, Canada, US, and Ireland; including the home of the former Irish Prime Minister (Taoiseach) Bertie Ahern.
“Working as an artist mainly inspired by nature I feel that this is an absolutely fantastic project. It’s a wonderful combination of creating beautiful pieces of art, involving and uniting artist from all over the world at the same time as saving our earth pollution. I was very happy to be invited and I’m honored to be part of such a worthy project. And not only am I able to support such a great cause, I also get some welcome display of my work. I am delighted to be a part of this project!”Lena Willryd
