Artist Statement
We live inside and are surrounded by beauty and pure magic. Those little moments when we notice it and connect to something greater (like the river rock-like shapes you spot under your feet while walking through the shadows of tree canopies on a summer walk, or that whooshing, comforting sound of geese wings passing-by above) are very special as if we just span out of the spinning vortex of our daily lives for a split moment to witness and experience something simple and yet so moving.

Elena Myasnikova started her growth in art in her late teens. She holds a BFA (from Russia) and Fashion Design diploma (from Canada). At the beginning of her professional career her art studies focused primarily on stage and theatre costume design. However, fine art has always played an important role in the artist’s life and Elena was mastering different painting / graphic techniques through her professional years. Elena’s art varies in styles. She expresses herself in expressionism, abstract and figurative detailed works with lavish embellishments.

Currently, Elena is residing in Calgary, Alberta, in the land of majestic Rockies.
