Biography by Laurie McClave, artist, art dealer, gallery owner

Jel Ena's work displays a mastery of the figure and color. Her style is instantly recognizable and extraordinarily matchless
in its visualization. Utilizing her mastery of acrylic/oil paints, pastels, graphite and colored pencils; intricate emotions and
hyper surreal visions are born and enchant every viewer into her dark sensual dreamscape.

Jel Ena is a classically trained artist intimate with the architecture of anatomy. The reflected light in shadows and the
volume of surfaces. Complex emotions captured in the mirrors of eyes. A sensual mythology of desire and color. Livid
flesh rendered with brush and pencil.
