About Yelena Sidorova

 
 
  • Biography
    I have an MFA in Oil painting and Art history from the Khabarovsk Fine Art & Graphic University, located in the Far East of Russia. Upon graduation, I spent 10 years teaching art at a Russian college, where I first discovered and fell in love with the mystery and magic silk painting. Since then, for over 20 years, silk has been my main art medium. In 1997 my family and I relocated to the beautiful Colorado. Since then, Colorado has been a home to me, my husband who is also an artist, our teenage son, and our two beautiful cats. Besides painting, we enjoy hiking and biking. My paintings are exhibited in national and international galleries and art shows, and are being purchased extensively for public and private collection all over the world.
    Artist Statement:
    I like working with a wide variety of subjects, such as landscapes, street scene , people ,flowers and still life. The style of my paintings is bright and decorative.I strive to convey emotions through my art, to express the poetry of lines and colors through flow and the exuberant medium of silk.
