Australian born Elena Green’s artistic journey began at the prestigious Julian Ashton Art School in the Rocks, Sydney. She was awarded the Thea Proctor Scholarship in 2007, which enabled her to focus on developing a deeper understanding of classical drawing and painting techniques. At the completion of her scholarship year, she won the Richard and Wenda Ashton prize for excellence in drawing. To extend her studies in representational painting, Elena has participated in numerous atelier-style workshops with realist painters Andrea. J. Smith, Lee Machelak, Christopher Brown, and Keith Dewell. In 2011, Elena graduated from Curtin University with a Bachelor of Art (Art). She was the recipient of several scholarships for scholastic achievement and was on the Dean’s Merit List for academic excellence. Elena has relocated to Anguilla to undertake an apprenticeship at the Ani Art Academies under the Master tutelage of Timothy W. Jahn.
