Artist Statement:

Hi, I am Olena McMurtrey, a contemporary artist based in California and specializing in cityscapes, seascapes, and landscapes. I have lived in several large cities on both sides of the world and finally settled in California. I got inspired to pursue furthering my art education while living in Los Angeles and completed the Master of Fine Arts at the Academy of Art University, San Francisco.  I am always experimenting and playing with many mediums to find the exact tool to express my creativity and voice. I enjoy feeling thickness and heavy flow of oil, acrylic and resin: these mediums are so different and alike at the same time. The biggest challenge for me is to find a unique mix of colors to achieve depth and vibration in my paintings.
