Canadian illustrator Elena makes bright, intimate, intricate hand-cut paper collages. Using recycled bits of paper imbued with their own histories, she assembles poetic images to illustrate personal stories and emotional experiences.
Public Preview Evening 17th April
Exhibiting in 2020
Elena completed a BFA from York University in Toronto, Canada in 2006, but spent a decade winding her way through odd jobs, a masters in occupational therapy, a couple overseas moves and motherhood (times two) en route to illustration. She now works freelance and makes zines and intricate hand-cut collages from collected paper snippets. Her work is often autobiographical, depicting women and children to explore social issues, find magic and uncover meaning in the mundane.
