Yelena Wysling was born in a little village in Switzerland. She started drawing as a child, but then forgot about it during her education. After completing her studies in cultural anthropology, geography and politics with a PhD on dementia care, she got into drawing again.
A gift of a loved one – five black fine liners and a sketchbook – brought her all of a sudden back. Back to experimenting with techniques, materials and compositions. Back to the passion that lies in theendless attempts to express herself with lines and colors. Back to educating herself in fine arts. Back to sharing the joy of expression with others.
