LENA LATOUR is Dutch/American designer now living in Los Angeles. After several years of experience as a Design Assistant at KMNelson Design LLC in Los Angeles and Professional Color Advisor at Dunn-Edwards Paints in Orange County, Lena began designing in Holland with her own company, Bontekoe Verity Mercantile. With a Certification of Interior Design from UCLA Extension, Lena has spent years mastering hand drafting, computer drafting and rendering with AutoCAD, Sketchup, Podium, and Photoshop, supported by an extensive knowledge of color, surface materials, and the fundamentals of interior design. In her free time Lena enjoys experimenting with many forms of art and media, such as gouache, oil and acrylic painting, as well as drawing, pattern design, and carving linoleum to make colorful ink prints. Although she enjoys the therapeutic process, Lena's favorite part of making art is being able to share it with everyone.
