As a child Yelena Budylin attended school for exceptional students run by the prestigious Russian Academy of Art and later graduated from Roerich School of Art in St. Petersburg, Russia, majoring in Painting and Art Restoration. She studied ceramics at the School of Russian Imperial Porcelain Factory, where she worked until immigration to the USA in 1990. Since 1990 she has considered herself a New Yorker, and is trying to combine the difficulties of immigrant life with art. She has had several US exhibits in New York, New Jersey, and Michigan. To quote Yelena, “My mission as an artist is to communicate through color and form my true psychical emotions and spirituality, my journey through Russia, Jerusalem, and New York in consciousness.” Her works are often painted in a style that mixes the geometric forms of cubism with the expressive and vivid color found in Impressionist works. Yelena is also an accomplished art restorer, and has been restoring paintings since the early 1980’s in both Europe and the United States.
