Yelena Bryksenkova is a Russian born, Ohio raised and now Brooklyn based artist with a penchant for watercolor illustrations and paintings. Her images are inspired by her travels to distant places, books and dreams, and an unwavering sense of home. Yelena graduated from the Maryland Institute of Art in 2012 with a BFA in illustration and has since gone onto illustrate for a variety of books and editorials. Our favourites are her illustrations for Lucie cash's Fairytale Food cook book.
