Alena Hennessy calls the positive mantras in her pieces "intentions" which she hopes leave people transformed, content, and open to wild possibilities. She views the process of art-making as a kind of therapy or healing, "one that brings us to quieter and more meditative states of being." She makes her home in Asheville, North Carolina, with her champagne fox Mimi Simone.
