Elena, Visual Artist
My artistic journey began at a young age and is a passion that has continued to this day. What has captivated my heart for so long is the process of convincing a blank canvas to come to life through a variety of mediums.
I focus mainly on realistic portraits that are often paired with messages of love, hope and faith. I invite you to journey with me as I unmask pieces of my heart through the exploration of different mediums and techniques.
The mediums I've gravitated towards are pencil (both lead and coloured), acrylic paint and my digital drawing tablet.
Many of my pieces are focused on one aspect of a subject - a close up of an eye, a hand, a single glass cup. I love to play around with reflections and shadows and to produce as much depth as my ability allows.
What triggers my creativity is finding an inspiring quote or phrase and creating a piece of work to go with it. Words and images are so powerful, especially when coupled together.
