Yelena’s Story

For Yelena, becoming an artist was a childhood dream come true.

She is a graduate of the prestigious State Academy of Fine Arts of Armenia, where she became fascinated with silk painting, as it allowed her combine art and fashion by creating unique pieces of wearable art.

When she moved to Ireland, she worked as an independent artist , then as an art consultant, then as a silk painting and art tutor at the Institute of Further Education in Dun Laoghaire.

Some of her works are inspired by Vincent Van Gogh, Claude Monet and the Irish stained-glass artist and illustrator Harry Clarke. Her artworks, including accessories, silk scarves and hand-painted leather bags, can be viewed at her studio, on this website and at handpicked craft fairs, including ‘Gifted’ at the RDS.

Yelena also runs silk painting and batik classes and workshops at her studio in Marlay Craft Courtyard and also
by arrangement at outside venues.
