Originally a graphic artist, Elena has enjoyed painting on and off over the years. After coming to Australia in 1991, she discovered local art groups and entered several competitions including the 2004 Pine Rivers Art Awards in 2004, where she won the major award.

Elena likes experimenting with various styles and techniques, and her subjects vary, depending on what takes her eye. She says, "I take my camera with me most of the time so that I can capture whatever catches my attention - mostly ordinary stuff - and then I do my own interpretation on canvas." The artist says she loves painting portraits and figures but paints pretty much whatever comes to mind.

Invariably, she works with acrylics, oils, pastels and charcoal - whatever takes her fancy. She regularly attends life drawing sessions with the Royal Queensland Art Society and has been exhibiting regularly with them. She also exhibits at the annual Rotary Art Spectacular, held in the CBD.

Elena's exhibition starts on May 1st, with the launch being held on Sunday, May 3rd. Pop along for a Sunday browse and enjoy a complimentary glass of wine.
