With painter and sculptor ancestors from Italy,  artist Charlene deLory comes by her talent naturally. She is a unique artist who paints with the power of emotion and has the ability to capture the human spirit in her painted subjects. When painting a portrait, she goes beyond plain realism, going where the camera doesn’t. She transcends the individual’s outer appearances and concentrates on the essence that makes them unique and exceptional. The portrait is complete when the eyes tell a story and Charlene can see and feel emotion through them. Charlene’s education includes an art scholarship at the Art Institute in Chicago, Illinois, and three years at UCLA in Architectural Perspective Drawing and Interior Design. She has studied portrait painting with several award-winning art teachers. Charlene has also taught perspective drawing and rendering techniques at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising and California College of Interior Design, in Los Angeles, California.

She lives in Hawaii Kai, where Oahu’s beauty and healing energies inspire her paintings.
