Collection: Lena Appel

Lena Appel is from Norrahammar but lives in Nyköping. The artist's ambition is to shed light on the fact that we are all different and need different things in order to grow and develop into the unique individuals we are meant to be. With her pictures, she wants to arouse thoughts and convey strength and inspiration. The artist uses mixed media, mainly on paper and canvas. Consciously mixes different materials, and through her great interest in gardens and nature, she creates naturalistic depictions and completely new species. In this way, it becomes a rich flora of differences and characters.
