Her paintings portray fantastic, mystical, and celestial landscapes of Israel while including such themes as the interconnection of mystical and real life, characters full of love, energy and music accords that fill by tastes and tenderness the Life. The motto and goal of Elena’s art are the World, Love and Life itself.
