VIEW IN MY ROOM
During this year's 100 Day Project I had decided to teach myself to work with Gouache, and begun experimenting using landscape images. Most of the paintings were based on photographs of places I had been at one point or another as I was missing being outside. This image comes from my year living in China, the photo this was based on was taken in the Gansu province.

Elena T. Smyrniotis is an artist who primarily works in oils and printmaking, but has begun to experiment more heavily with gouache over the past two years. Currently located in Dubai, Elena has also worked in China and England, although she calls Canada home. Her engagement with Art started young and began to be more concentrated after taking a year long student workshop at the Art Gallery of Ontario, in Toronto. She obtained a Bachelor fo Fine Arts with an Honours in Painting at the University of Ottawa where she studied painting mainly under Leslie Reid. Her oils at the point focused mainly on male nudes, however now that she lives in the Middle East her work has developed a focus on the minute moments with people as she tries to better understand them. In her art she look at the experience of those around her and captures the beauty they possess through all the uncertainty in their lives. Whether that uncertainty is parenthood, the pandemic, or the every day difficulties of living. After a decade long hiatus in her practice, she has come back to Art since becoming a mother. Although her themes have significantly changed in that time. Through all the stress of motherhood, she has discovered a new focus that she did not possess before. An appreciation for working in the small moments, and embracing mistakes. Early on her career she has had several shows at venues around Ottawa, Ontario, including at La Petite Mort Gallerie. Her artwork was also featured in various publication. Her recent success has seen her collaborate with The Louvre, Abu Dhabi, to offer a series of workshops. As well as a listing through Art Mums United and inclusion in the Online Exhibition “Come Outside” through Circle Space Norwich.
