Salena has been an active member of the art community for over 20 years. She is currently the president of the Richmond Village Art Club and curating virtual exhibitions for the RVAC and solo exhibitions for herself. Salena is experienced in working with acrylic paint, pencil portrait drawings, photography and textile designs.
Initially self taught, these foundations were later reinforced while studying at various institutions across the country, developing a flair for subtle, yet unique designs in creating an East Coast vibe artwork.
“Working in the arts has allowed me to capture my love for the ocean, waterways and buoys. It invokes the smells and sounds of all of the east coast provinces, especially Nova Scotia. It reminds me of the people, culture, food, the land and the vast seas.“
