Welcome to my art space!

My name is Lena Chhay and here in this art space, I showcase my unique insect and animal illustrations.

Born and raised in Sydney Australia, I have been illustrating ever since a young girl. I have graduated with a microbiology degree and I am currently working in the science field. However, now I am ready to show the world the passion that I’ve been hiding.

It started off purely as a childhood hobby but now I have realised that I love art as much as science. I have spent countless hours after work illustrating animals and insects. It is amazing how diverse, detailed and beautiful nature can be. After a recent volunteering trip overseas, I began to understand that I have an opportunity to express both my personality and talent.

I am self-taught and capable of illustrating in both digital and traditional formats. I enjoy playing with traditional media, such as, pencils, pens, charcoal and watercolour paints. However, I have discovered that I love illustrating insects using Adobe Photoshop CC.

Please continue to watch this space and follow my journey.
