Elena is a working artist painting in watercolor and in oil. Elena grew up in Ukraine and Russia where art and music were a big part of her childhood.
Watercolor, a dynamic, fun, and fascinating medium, is ideal for expressing light and eloquent beauty of a subject, and Elena loves letting it mingle on a wet paper and create unique blends and effects. Elena works outside, plein air, as well as in her studio.
Her early successes in watercolor lead her to have her art published in Splash 13, Splash 17 books. She’s a signature member of Northwest Watercolor Society, associated member of Oil Painters of America, America Impressionist Society. Elena exhibits, competes, and shows her works in many exhibitions in Pacific Northwest as well as across United States. She is currently teaching weekly watercolor classes at Arts Umbrella on Thursdays. In June 2019 Elena will lead plein air workshop to Venice, Italy; more info at www.internationalpleinairworkshops.com
