Aleona Isakova was born in Tbilisi, Georgia.
She began her career in Haute Couture Fashion design in Moscow, Russia.
From 1991 to 2004, she led Fashion Company (Switzerland & Russia) as Art Director, designing haute couture collections that were shown internationally with great acclaim in locations such as: Citadel, Jerusalem, Israel; Welsh Parliament, Great Britain; Tretyakov Gallery, Moscow ; Propeller Fashion Show, Sydney, Australia.
Experts from The State Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, one of the world’s largest and oldest museums, deemed her illustrations for the book of Song of Solomon “an original and significant contribution to contemporary Biblical illustration.”
Aleona’s art was presented at the 60th National Prayer Breakfast, Washington DC and in the Evergreen Museum and Library, Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, MD, in the Regent Hall, Oxford St. London, Great Britain and in the Tretyakov Gallery, Moscow, Russia.
Since 2010 she lives with her husband in the Washington DC metropolitan area, USA.
My work is inspired by music and dreams; how one feels at the first sight of flowers blooming after rain, a purple sunset in the mountains, or the sun reflecting on the ocean. The abstract nature of my art reflects the beauty I see in nature that touches my heart and offers hope and love. Painting is my vocabulary and enables me to uniquely express my passion and emotions. I imagine my art to offer a window to the world, to dreams, to nature and the joy of living that I feel, enhancing a home with beauty and vitality. Music fills my heart and soul when I paint and it is my hope that these emotions, which color my palette, are conveyed to the canvas.
