I have shared the work of artist Yelena Bryksenkova quite some times before. But really, I never get bored of staring at the countless colors, patterns and details in her beautiful illustrations. Love her work so much!
Originally from Saint Petersburg, Russia, Yelena Bryksenkova received her BFA in illustration from the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore. She was raised in Northeast Ohio, studied illustration in the Czech Republic and now lives in Los Angeles, California where she works as a freelance illustrator and fine artist. Her illustrations, which are often inspired by her love for home and the comfort of everyday objects, have appeared in countless prints & publications such as American Greetings, Flow Magazine & Red Cap Cards.
Only a week before Christmas now! I don’t remember ever looking forward to it so much as this year. It’s been a busy couple of months. I guess it awakened a strong need of spending some warm and cozy nights with family & friends. Walks, talks, dinners and wine.. yes please!
I’m aways on the lookout for new works by Yelena Bryksenkova, who is still one of my favorite illustrators. There are exciting new things to be spotted every time I give her site a visit. Today I’m sharing three recent projects Yelena has been working on.
For many more, visit these previous posts or go her online shop at Etsy.
I found these lovely portraits by Yelena Bryksenkova on her blog the other day and, as always, fell in love with her work. They are from a series called Cara Mia, which was created for The Enormous Tiny Art Show no. 17 at the Nahcotta Gallery in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. Soooo beautiful!
