Featured Tranquilista: Alena Hennessy
It started long ago, this fascination that Alena had for all the little things that she could find outside. She and her childhood friends would romp around from sunrise to sunset, creating little worlds of creatures and plant life that would come to life through their illustrations and paintings. Today Alena does what she loves best, living life as a working artist, author, and teacher. She is deeply inspired to teach others the creative process and to find their own unique voice though art making. She also has a passion for yoga, plant spirit medicine, and the healing arts.

Alena Hennessy has designed and created custom art for numerous business entities. Some current and past clients include: Target, Urban Outfitters, ABC Studios, Galison/Mudpuppy Stationary, Papyrus, Monique Lllulier, Lark & Loon, the City of Chapel Hill, North Carolina.

Her prints and giftwares can be found through out the US and abroad. She has exhibited her paintings in galleries in major cities though out the United States and has received press from several publications including Dwell, The Washington Post, Soul/Body Connection, ReadyMade, Redbook, and Natural Health magazine.
