+ Artist's Experience and Education

I earned a B.A. in Psychology degree from Northeastern Illinois University in 2011 and a A.A. degree from Wilbur Wright College. I have studied art academically at both universities, independently form literature and practice, and privately in apprenticeship with my mom, Anna Jelen, M.F.A., since early childhood.

I formulated my independent Significant Art Theory, that upholds high standards for Educative, Socially Constructive, Technically Difficult, Original and Aesthetically Attractive quality in art.

I will present my five canvas painting "The Psychology of Torture" in November, 2012 during an event sponsored by Chicago Torture Justice Memorials, Black People Against Police Torture, and The Propeller Fund

I presented my paintings "Human Behavioral Predispositions" and "Significant Art" with my independent research study "New Empathy Measure Finds Two Types of Cognitive Empathy" on May, 2012, during the Association for Psychological Science Annual Conference.

I presented my five-canvas painting "Psychosocial Effects of the Smolensk Catastrophe" during Wieslaw K. Binienda's, Ph.D., F. ASCE research presentation: "Analysis of the Presidential Plane Crash in Smolensk, Russia".
