Elena studied painting with Karl Kuerner Jr. when she lived in the artist’s colony in the famous Wyeth country and has exhibited in Pennsylvania, San Francisco, and Europe. Drawing on her experience as an artist, Elena founded “Elena’s Metaphor Kitchen”, a unique method that combines many ingredients that enable people achieve important transformations and process them in a state of flow very similar to the art zone known to those who practice creative expression. Among many ingredients in Elena’s Metaphor Kitchen, you will sample art making, music, poetry, writing, drama, comedy, fitness, hiking, biking, meditation, cooking, music and other activities that help rejuvenate, center, and spark creativity.
Elena offers “Transformation Flow Through Creativity!”, a series of private sessions designed for executives in corporations and “Exploration of Your Inner Self”, private sessions for individuals with great potential that are looking to expand it even further through a creative expression gateway.
Elena volunteers for Kids and Art Foundation, bringing art to hospital wards for children affected by cancer. Elena is an active member of the San Carlos Art Center.
