Since immigrating to America in 1995 Lena has retained her love and admiration for her native Brazil while embracing her American citizenship. Relocating to the United States has empowered Lena’s unique expression of collage to evolve, visually navigating viewers through complex cultural, social and environmental issues with meticulous attention to detail. Entirely self-taught, Lena utilizes only original print material to bring her intricate collages to life, authenticating her style of work without the use of any computer aided processes. She is insistent each work of art is created without a preliminary sketch, allowing her mind to direct her hands so that each collage emerges organically. Through this therapeutic process at her studio in Jersey City, New Jersey Lena creates a heightened sense of awareness for the delicately precise placement of all imagery for each individual work. Such attention to detail has garnered Lena the honorary award of Premier Artist on behalf of the Brazilian Endowment for the Arts in New York City and selected artist to showcase her work for the I Biennial International Arts of Sorocaba, Brazil

“As a woman, I feel free to express myself through my artwork. Being an artist is like having wings to launch me into a perfect flight, transcending everyday life.” – Lena Medeiros
