In her colorful pieces, Yellena James combines complex abstracts forms into dazzling images that take on lives of their own. Each of them is a very unique ecosystem to discover. James describes her arrangements of organic shapes and tangled lines as « at once floral and alien, organic and sci-fi ». Based in Portland, the artist has participated in shows around the U.S. and overseas. She also has done illustration work for Anthropologie, Crabtree and Evelyn, Crate and Barrel, Relativity Media, and many others.
