A pastel portrait by Orlena.
About The Artist:
Born in Orange County, California, I have been an artist for over 30 years, and come from a family of artists. My aunt was a published author; my uncle is a professional photographer; my mother was a portrait artist; my sister is an impressionistic artist and pianist; my nephew is an actor, graphic artist and D.J. in Los Angeles, California; and my son is a guitarist. I started my artistic endeavors through the guidance of my mother at a very early age. She was also a professional model and actress in New York City. I am a realistic artist, and draw what I know, what I love, and live near Hollywood, California. I complete, primarily, works of art in pastel and oils, of the stars of the Silver Screen, Classic Hollywood, and all in vibrant color and detail. I have attended several well known colleges in the Southern California. My work has been shown in galleries, libraries, and law offices, across the Country. Many of my portraits are owned by collectors from around the world. My paintings decorate the homes of celebrities and notables. One of my portraits is part of the California State Capital Building Archives. I have also taught art in college and hosted my own drawing show on television. Currently, my work can be viewed at the prestigious Hollywood Wax Museum locations in Hollywood, CA., Branson, MO and Gatlinburg, TN. Also, seven pastel portraits of Diana, Princess of Wales, appear in the book:
"Diana in Art", published in 2007. My work can also be viewed on the Ohio Arts Council website. A cooperative effort with the Columbus Metropolitan Library. My Hollywood pastel portraits can be viewed on other websites dedicated to the memory of several famous celebrities. I specialize in realistic portraits of the great Hollywood legends, and other notables. My mediums are: pastel, oil, watercolor, acrylic, and pencil, but I prefer pastel. Each piece can take several hours or days to complete. Great love and attention to detail goes into each portrait I create.
