Alena Rachinger was born in Nur-Sultan  and now lives in Ingolstadt Germany.

As teenager she started drafting und portrayment.

After studying veterinary medicine and starting with my carrer, she found her passion for animal paintings. Animals are the passion of her life, they always delight her. 

The expression of the eyes, the balance of proportions, the beauty of the fur, the play of colours, the general impression and the message to the viewer are all equally important. 

She particularly likes the combination of sharpness and softness like colour combinations of shades of blue with shades of rust.

 Started as a autodidact, she visited courses by Anselm Prester (oil painter und pastelist), Ralf Heynen (dutch oil painter) and Martina Zingler (impressionistic landscape artist).

Since 2019 she gives pastel and acryl courses for adults and children. It brings her a lot of joy being able to pass on her experience.
