About Alena Lane
My name is Alena Lane Allegretti and I am an artist, illustrator, designer, and unrepentant notebook-margin-doodler. I graduated from Williams College in 2011 with a degree in Studio Art, and have since been finding ways of challenging myself by applying my skills to assorted visual media.
When not working as a designer and web developer in the marketing field, I freelance as an illustrator and comic book artist. Outside of my professional interests, I enjoy art museums, traveling, writing fiction, reading graphic novels, and curling up with a nice hot cup of tea.
If you're interested in my work or would like to know more, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
