Elena Burykina

I was born in Ulan-Ude, a city in the Russian Far East. Later, with my family, I moved to Ukraine where I received professional training in art and architecture. I completed art school in the city of Dnipropetrovsk, and received a bachelor degree and degree in architecture. After a 15-year career as an architect, I turned my full attention to painting. In 2013, I moved to the United States and began working full time as an artist.
My favorite subjects are people with their personalities, moods, thoughts, and favorite things. I work with different mediums such as oil and watercolor paints, etching and linoleum block printing.
