Olena Babak is a classically trained artist who has recently moved to Maine from North Carolina where she attended a private art atelier. She is trained in the academic traditions of the French and Russian schools where significant emphasis is put on direct observation and pushing the limits of lighting and color in the process of capturing mood and enchantment in ever changing surroundings.
Olena Babak is an award winning artist whose landscapes and figurative works can be found in the Albin Polasek museum and a number of private collections and galleries in the U.S. and abroad.
Formerly teaching graduate students at the Academy of Classical Design, Olena now offers private workshops and classes in her Bangor, Maine studio. Her private studio and residence is on the peaceful Great Moose Lake in central Maine.
