Lena Gustafson is an Illustrator and Artist. She makes prints, paintings, and drawings in her studio in Oakland, CA.  After graduating from the Art Institute of Boston in 2011, she cofounded Night Diver Press with Peter Calderwood. Her work can be recognized by her interest in women, water, and metaphysics.


My lens is often focused on the strength of femininity. I am interested in the private relationships women have with their bodies and with others. Much of my creative output is from the culmination of many observations of women being themselves, doing their thing.  My hope is that this work can be used as a mirror to the people from whom I draw.
