Elena Nikolaeva

Elena is a local artist who takes recycled wood, often driftwood, and combines it with found objects to transform them into whimsical and unique pieces. Each sculpture is completely original and reflects Elena's personality and sense of humour. Her work always attracts attention - and a smile - especially on closer inspection when each component can be recognised and marvelled at. Elena's use of found objects - brushes, handles, tools or whatever is suitable -  creates singular pieces with a individual personality and character.
