She attended the University of Toronto and completed a double major in Cinema Studies and Fine Arts. She works in a variety of different mediums including watercolour painting, printmaking, photography and chalk. Her work is often characterized by a keen attention to detail, simplified colour pallet, and a unique consciousness and conveyance of her subject’s personality. Growing up out west and moving to Toronto, a great deal of Elena’s inspiration comes from both nature and cinema. Along with working at Greenhouse Jucie Co., Elena creates custom portraits for customers all over Canada (www.portraitsbyelena.tumblr.com). For the Rosedale Art Fair, she has chosen to do a portrait series inspired by film director Wes Anderson and the iconic characters from his films. Contrasting to the style of Wes Anderson, Elena has chosen to work in black and white removing the dimension of colour in order to solely focus on the expressions of her subjects.

Featured Artist: Larissa Yeung
Activity: My name is Larissa Yeung and I am eighteen years old. I am currently in my final year of high school at Holy Trinity School and I will be attending OCAD U in September.
For me, art is how I express myself and my ideas. I’ve been drawing since I was a child and I have always taken pride in making something beautiful and meaningful. I’ve worked in several mediums and enjoy drawing, sculpture, watercolours, and photography the most. I look forward to experimenting, exploring and learning more about these mediums along with discovering new ones. My goal is to evoke thought and emotion into my viewer when they see my art, and hopefully inspire them to make art as well. In the future, I hope to make more powerful pieces and to make pieces that comment on the world that we live in.
