Jelena Maticevic

October brings some charming drawings from Jelena Maticevic.

During her working week, Jelena is a doctor, tending to sick babies and saving lives, but she spends her free time drawing pictures, baking cakes and going on bike rides. She was born in Croatia, and moved to Perth back in 1988. In recent years she's added Rotorua in New Zealand and Melbourne to her list of abodes, currently residing in the latter locale, though her love of this fine city in the west will surely see her settle back here before too long.

Jelena's style is a little whimsical and a lot of lovely, often featuring very characterful animals and people. A positive outlook is reflected through her artworks, yet she manages to represent a range of human emotion.
Girl drawings, originals $60-$70, prints $6

For Mini Art Mart, Jelena has created a collection of A5 drawings in pencil and gouache. Boy are they pretty! Some of the drawings are also available as limited edition prints.

They are on 110 GSM and 185 GSM, acid free paper.
