Elena Blanco illustrator


Elena loves literature and her work refers to narratives, poems, dreams and imaginations. Her style is exploratory, imaginative and playful, combining abstract shapes and colourful patterns with figurative elements. She likes watercolour and ink because of their beautiful luminosity.

Elena is a self-taught artist who studied architecture in Barcelona --a fact which has influenced her style very much. She started her career as an artist after having her kids and reconnecting with the wonderful world of childhood. She then decided it was never too late to take the lead of her own life and do what she loved. She opened an Etsy shop and started selling her designs on-line. She now sells on Etsy, society6, Saatchi on-line and DENY designs.

Elena lives in  London since 2001 with an English partner and two kids. She lives in a lively area of South London called Herne Hill in an old Victorian House that needs continuous repairing but inspires her a lot.
