Having earned a Masters of Fine Art in Miniature Painting, Elena was taught the extraordinary egg tempera medium at the renowned Palekh Art College, Russia, where centuries old traditions were inherited from generations of icon writers by generations of fine artists.

Over the years, Elena developed her own new style of painting, perfecting and championing the mesmerizing egg tempera fine art medium in our modern society.

In 2013 she co-founded Egg Tempera Movement with Anastasia Baranoff, in an effort to revitalize the rare fine art tradition of painting in the genuine egg tempera technique.
