Welcome to Yelena Lewis’s blog, featuring original artwork and writing in English and Russian by Yelena Lewis.
I was born in the USSR of the pre-Perestroika era in Moscow where I have received my first degree in Teaching English. I have left Russia and lived in the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Switzerland and France. I have received my second degree in Humanities from the UK Open University.
I have travelled extensively throughout Europe, Asia and the United States: the sum of my life experience, my studies and travelling constitute an inexhaustible well of inspiration for creative work in painting and writing.
I spent three years learning to sketch from models at the Ateliers de l’Academy in Ferney-Voltair, France.
I studied water color with Maître Alain Gegout.
I have exhibited my work individually, as well as a participant of collective exhibitions in France, Switzerland, Italy and the UK
