I'm so glad you've decided to stop by and visit Calm Under Tension. My name is Gwen Gyldenege. I am the artist who creates everything you see on this website.
I have been creating all forms of art since I could hold a crayon in my hand. I work in practically every medium: from paper to polymer, fabric to fiber, mixed media to photography. I love the joyful moment when you realize, "Wow! I made that. ME. my hands." I also love to share my experiences in the hopes that they will inspire you to follow your muse in your favorite medium.
If you're interested in my metaphysical or voiceover work, please look below.
