Aleona Isakova was born in Tbilisi, Georgia. She began her career in High Fashion in Moscow, Russia. From 1991 to 2004, Aleona was the Art Director of Fashion Company FAVORE (Switzerland & Russia). She designed 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.
In 2005, Aleona committed the next two years to illustrating the book of the “Song of Solomon”. Experts from one of the world’s largest and oldest museums, the Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, deemed her illustrations as “an original and significant contribution to contemporary Biblical illustration.”
After moving to the United States, she began producing abstract paintings inspired by music and nature.
In 2012, her art was presented at the 60th National Prayer Breakfast, Washington DC, and at the Evergreen Museum and Library, Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, MD.
