A remote island surrounded by endless white sandy beaches and pale blue liquid as a reflection of a cloudless sky is her everlasting muse. The ocean’s vastness, the endless shades of blue, the power of wind, waves and wildlife are overwhelming. The incredible biodiversity and natural richness are a great inspiration. Evolution revealed incredibly impressive creatures. Two of Elena’s preferred motives to paint are the seahorse and the jellyfish. Seahorses are elegant and apply as talisman. Unlike most other fish, they are monogamous and mate for life. It’s touching to see them float with hooked tales in a romantic manner. No wonder she paints them in couples as a symbol of true love. Jellyfish are truly unique and majestic. Fitted with fluorescent lights, the refined and toxic medusa seems to dance gracefully while hovering underneath the water surface.
