About the Tutor 

In 2006, Elena Churilova moved from Russia to Australia as a qualified professional. Inspired by the local scenery (sky, sea, river, houses in the street), she returned to her passion of painting.

Elena began experimenting with various mediums and techniques (oil, pastel, gouache and watercolour) in a style which combines reality and fantasy.
