Ela lives on the North West Coast of British Columbia. She is a self-taught painter for the last 20 years.  ‘Surrealism over realism’ and ‘inner over outer’ was and is the most influential aspect in her paintings.

Her inner motto is to believe in better tomorrow and collectively create it.

Her work revolves cosmic vistas- nebulas and planets, chickenoids – birds with human traits, hearts  or simple circles. 

Ela is a volunteer at the Puppet Theatre Jester. She makes puppets and props, banners and posters, anything that involves creative.  She also volunteers her time to Polonez Tri
City Organization as poster maker.
