"People are the biggest motivation for me. They are beautiful, unique, bizarre, but very fragile. Especially kids. Every person is a deep story. You paint and wonder, but! as a matter of fact, I have no idea what a delightful thing a Lobster Quadrille is."
Russian painter, Elena Tugozvonova-Borodina has spend most of her life doing academic studies in Alfresco painting as well as in Medicine at Saint Petersburg Stieglitz State Academy of Art and Design, Herzen State Pedagogical University of Russia in St. Petersburg.
"But once I realized that I am so tired of rules and laws, I wanted to paint like a child: simple and happy. So I am free now to draw like I see and want.”
Some of Elena's works are in the USA and in Finland and in 2018 her artwork was selected for @death_of_a_coworker and @404taken. She has exhibited in group collections in Vyborg and Saint-Petersburg.
