Leena Rosentreter

I was born and raised in Finland.  I moved to the U.S. in 1984 when I married my husband Eric.  We have three children, Max, Alex and Anya, all teenagers.

I'm mostly self-taught in art although  I have taken a few drawing and watercolor classes over the years.  I like to draw portraits in graphite and  lately also in colored pencil.  I started getting portrait commissions in 1996.  I also paint still lives and landscapes in watercolor and pastel.  I have taught basic drawing classes Mooresville Arts.
