Lena LeMay, Landscape Artist

Lena LeMay, native Texan, has been drawing and painting most of her life.  Most of her family could draw, and she did not realize this was a specail talent until she started school and noticed that most children could not.  Lena has never been formally trained, and yet her paintings are in everyway masterfully executed.  She has recently moved to the Houston area to be close to family in her "golden years". 

Lena's work, "Seasons of Inspiration" may be viewed during the month of February at the Barbara Bush Branch Library.
