Elena Petrova
Whitby, Canada

Elena Petrova captures the serene qualities of nature in her paintings. Anything beautiful inspires her, from human relationships to dance to music. She has been greatly influenced by Abstract Expressionism and loves working in fast brushstrokes and palette knife strokes. When she’s not making art, she spends time with her husband and two boys in Canada. Fun fact: she meditates for an hour each morning.

I am painting again! We got a Brittany spaniel puppy a few months ago and he literally took all my time! But dogs grow so fast and now he can quietly watch me painting!

Hi Cindy! Thank you! I loved it too! When a painting is finished, I am no longer a painter, just a viewer. I do not think about the process of creation, because it doesn't matter for me anymore. What matters is how we get connected. And here with birches, I felt calmness and infinity. I am very happy that you loved it! Thank you for letting me know! Elena
