ABOUT THE ARTIST

 Elena Valerie started her art journey in Australia, inspired by beauty of nature and led by famous artists, who showed her how to use media and painting techniques to express her vision.

Now she presents a collection of oil painted flowers in a form of a dancing flow of the harmony. Flowers were skilfully painted in realistic manner using glazing layers which makes them emotionally rich and exceptionally vibrant. The goal of this collection is to send the message of beauty, sensuality and passion.

STATEMENT

"I am planting a message of love and beauty with my paintings. In particular inspecting flowers, I study the beauty of life itself. The harmonious part of our wondrous world and its inhabitants are the core of my work. It is my desire to engage the viewer in a dialogue with my work, discovering the intricacies, melodiousness and layers of natures charm and artistry."
