Elena IosilevichNew York NY USA
I was born in Russia in 1975 and has resided in New York since 1996. I have studied figurative drawing at National Academy and School of Fine Art, New York City. I also studied privately with painter/teacher Brandon Soloff at his studio in West Chelsea, Manhattan. I have BA in Decorative Art. My primary focus is on color and composition in painting and my major subjects include landscape and still life. I am drawn to the simple, unpretentious, and quotidian, which is reflected in my art. I believe that observation and creativity, as well as hard work and continual learning, are the key to my continued growth as an artist.
