After studying privately with a respected artist from the age of twelve to sixteen, Elena initially specialised in fine art commissions and illustrations before later finding her forte as a cartoonist and caricaturist.
She has been entertaining guests for many years at corporate events and parties nationwide with her live, amusing caricatures, which are the perfect way to add fun to any event!
She is also in demand for her studio work and regularly undertakes commissioned cartoons and caricatures for any occasion where a personalised and original piece of artwork is wanted. This proves particularly popular for wedding invitations, birthdays and retirements.
Her caricatures and cartoons are also used as an effective and fun way of advertising in the corporate sector.
She draws both group montages of staff members or a particular person such as the founder or managing director, incorporating the appropriate themed setting, to reflect the type of business or product it is promoting.
This also works extremely well at live events by using paper that has been prepared with pre drawn themed bodies and the company's contact details on it.
It is a big crowd puller at the trade shows especially, and it ensures that potential clients that visit a stand will keep the caricature with all of the company's publicity on it, as a souvenir rather than throw it away-as is often the case with leaflets!
Aside from her training as an artist, Elena is also an accomplished make-up artist, having studied at the London College of Fashion. She has had the good fortune to be involved in many diverse areas such as television, film and special effects and is especially experienced in fashion, bridal and editorial make-up for magazines and advertising.
Due to her artistic background, Elena also enjoys using colour and creating effects and is well known on the corporate circuit for her face and body painting, having worked for many of the large respected companies in the UK and abroad.
