I have been seeking solace and comfort in Mother nature lately..she seems to be a recurring subject of my sketches.
My name Alyen means the shoot of a plant in Lepcha, it was given to me by my grandfather. He wrote it in a book before I was born. It had no meaning..until I connected with her again.
Alyen Leeachum Foning. I am a Textile, Fashion and Accessory Designer by profession, illustrator.... otherwise a strange concoction of many many things.... I love being a soulful hippie, a partial goth, sometimes a huge anime and manga otaku, tribal woman from the north east, orient lover, crafty DIY person, Fashionista, Mystic gypsy woman.... soooo much more.
It's funny that I thought that I could describe myself and write down all the ingredients that make me ..me. But it's a tough. So I guess it it will anyway be more fun if you discover one picture at a time.
