Eleny draws inspiration from most different sources. Always bearing her signature Brazilian style, she playfully mixes diverse influences such as Emille Gallet glass vases with indigenous motifs, vintage Brazilian fabrics with Latin Music album covers, antique laces with exotic tropical florals.
Initially working from original sketches, she then adds different techniques such as painting, paper cut-outs, free stitching, photography and digital media to the final creation of her designs.
Already beginning to apply her designs on different surfaces such as textiles, ceramics and wallpaper, Eleny is now aiming to delve deeper into new designs concepts and innovative use of materials.
After participating in the “New Designers “ exhibition in London ,Eleny worked at the Print Tank Studio ,designing textile prints to be sold at various international textile trade fairs.
Recently back in Rio de Janeiro, she now creates her designs , illustrations as well as her Fine Art work in her studio in the trendy Botanical Garden area.
