Elena started her career as a textile designer with one of the leading textile manufacturers in the country before relocating to the UK. Based in the South West and subsequently in the North West she went on to work in upholstery with several soft furniture producers and was involved in many bespoke furnishing projects ranging from sofas for private customers and retailers to bar seating for hotels and exclusive designs for high profile clients. After over 10 years in the business Elena decided to set up on her own focusing on high-end furniture and homewares as well as artwork, something Elena has been active in since her University days.
Elena’s first design was born as part of her private collection and sprang from her interest in bespoke furnishings and interior design. This led her to develop a technique that transforming conventional furniture into individually crafted pieces of art with pictorial surface relief designs.
Alongside her furniture work, Elena paints utilising traditional approaches such as acrylics on canvas and her own signature style technique where she creates her first-rate artwork on metal mesh which is later fixed on a wood panel. These works exhibit rich and distinctive texture making an intriguing impression on the viewer.
Whilst furniture is a means to express art in unconventional form and deliver elements that would complement interior décor, Elena’s paintings represent a fusion of her passion for impressionism and figurative art and her vision of how these can be used to communicate human emotions. In her own words: "I am fascinated and inspired by human thought and emotion evoked by everyday experiences and the life around us. My work essentially captures my own emotions and reflects what I see in the world that surrounds me, and I want to convey this to the viewer in various forms. What gives me a sense of fulfillment is when my customer shares these emotions and can appreciate what comes through the painting - this is most pleasing".
