ABOUT LENKA: I was born in San Francisco, California in 1953. Both my parents were very artistic free thinkers. I am a third generation artist. I watched my mother paint, and my grandfather was the Hungarian portrait painter and commercial artist, Jules Erbit. When I was 7 my Parents moved us all to Europe in order to send us kids to Summerhill School, a boarding school founded by A.S.Neill, based on his educational philosophy. This philosophy afforded me the opportunity to make art in depth. My art education after Summerhill was varied. I attended Sir John Cass of school of Art in London and Bournville College in Birmingham, The Factory of Visual Art, Seattle, Wa., we moved around a lot. My most valuable schooling was a year apprenticeship with the Seattle Painter, Sally Whitten. She taught us how to see, to really look, at the colours, the composition, and dynamic tension in a painting. When a painting has reached that point of dynamic tension, having the sense to stop there.
