In 2002 she started working in the Dnepropetrovsk Botanical Garden as a care manager for ornamental flowering shrubs. She worked in the botanical garden until 2008 In 2003 she entered the Dnipropetrovsk National University (DNU) at the Faculty of Biology and Ecology, specialty Landscape Designer by correspondence.

Until 2016, Elena was not connected to the world of art in any way. Until 2016 she had the opportunity to visit the Art Basel exhibition taking place in Hong Kong. That event turned her life upside down. Now all her thoughts were on art, artists, the history of art, and of course the desire to be part of it. Elena has been searching for her style of painting for several years. She is still in search.
And in 2019, she had the opportunity to participate in a famous art exhibition in China, the Art Canton exhibition. For this exhibition, her first collection entitled "Cats as People" was created. Eleven paintings were created with one idea in mind - cats can also wear glasses.
At the moment Elena is working on a new series called "Soft Animals", which, according to the idea, will feature the brightest representatives of the animal world. And of course, cats, a lot of cats, where to go without them?
In March 2021, Elena began her studies at the Oleg Toporygin college of fine arts. At the moment the training is based on an online platform.
Elena lives between two countries, Mexico and Hong Kong, traveling for six months each. Due to the world situation, she has not left Mexico since 2019 and plans to stay here at least until the end of this year.
