Letting Go


Letting Go is the latest NFT by Alana Lee available on Foundation


This is my very first NFT offering, edition 1/1, and the first image in the collection “Evolution of an Artist”. That’s a lot of firsts!

Sometimes we lose our way and sight of our goals. We are held back by fear, by self-value, or by what we think others expect of us. By letting go of our fears we can move forward with an open mind and courage in our hearts.

“Letting Go” is a seamless looping animation based on my award-winning portrait created by combining several still images taken with my Canon camera, a digitally rendered set of angel wings, enhanced with moving clouds.

The Evolution Of An Artist

Welcome! I’m Alana, a photographer and digital artist specializing in fine art portraits, headshots, and digital art.

I’ve been in love with fine art since I was a child, creating and exhibiting paintings inspired by my love of natural history and wildlife since I was a teenager. I’ll never forget my first exhibition and sale of wildlife paintings, alongside world-renowned wildlife art painters. In my 20s I set my paintbrushes aside to pursue a career in genetics, and I would have never imagined my heart would call me back to the world of fine art later in life.

Following a diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis, I found myself learning photography as a form of therapy after a severe flare-up that temporarily affected my vision and mobility. I could only see shapes in light and dark, and color was very limited. As my vision began to return I found that photography gave me a new outlet to express my creativity and enabled me to experience and engage with my environment in a way I’d never explored before.

Mastering the art of composite photography allowed me to bring imaginary worlds to life and tell stories in a brand new way. There are no longer limitations or constraints and anything is possible, especially with the addition of 3D modeling technology to conventional photography and artistic techniques.

I am now sharing my creations as NFTs, available exclusively with  Foundation, and I invite you to join me on this journey. Why NFTs? I believe in exploring possibilities, new frontiers, and being open to change. We can’t predict our future, but we can control how we feel and react to change. I feel my heart pulling me in this direction and I’m so excited to explore this new world.
