ABOUT LENA SHUGAR

Lena's travels have influenced and inspired her creativity. Her art has been seen in, Sweden, Israel, USA, England and Canada. In 2001, the Linsday Gallery of Ontario, honoured her by bestowing their Award of Excellence for a portrait that is perhaps, worthy of the old masters. 

Shortly after arriving to Canada, she began studying under renowned artist Doris McCarthy. These studies no doubt contributed to her success as the Head of the Canadian Industries Ltd. Colour Studio  and later, her independant design consultancy. As art mentor and teacher, Lena developed innovative techniques to develop the talent of her students, freeing them from the constraints of traditional pedagogy. 

 

While Lena is of course, especially talented, original and successful, none of these qualities make her unusual. What may be said to be unusual, are all of these attributes in one artist. 

 

Lena Shugar resides in Toronto Ontario, Canada.
