Lena's professional life as an artist began at the age of seventeen when she started receiving commissions for mural paintings and traditional Russian decorative art. At the age of 23, she obtained a full time position at Borisfen-S, the largest Ukrainian Studio of Animated Films. After 5 years of honing her animation skills, Lena returned full time to Fine Arts studies by taking private classes in Ukraine. Lena emigrated to the United States in 2003 yet continued to return to Ukraine often for advanced classes with master artists. She eventually completed a three-year scholarship program at The Long Island Academy of Fine Art. Building on 25 years in the study and mastery of art, Lena Yaremenko continuously works to perfect her skills in oil painting and photography.
From 2005 until the present, Lena has been commissioned to create and photograph murals, scenery and miniature figures on one of the largest “historically accurate” privately owned model railroads.
