Elena Plekhanova stone paintings.
Elena Plekhanova (Orlova) passionately loves stones. She is a professional geologist, graduated from Mining and Geology Department, Donetsk University, specializing in Minerals and Environmental Geology. Elena Plekhanova lives and works together with her husband, a jeweler, in the city of Vyshgorod of Kiev region. They are both geologists, so they are wizards of stones, which they love and study for a long time. The world of minerals reveals rich color palette, and is able to inspire any creative artistic mind. Creating painting of minerals is similar to creating mosaics, or doing a puzzle. Besides, such creative work with stones has a therapeutic effect. For her paintings Elena uses various minerals – rock crystal, citrine, topaz, carnelian, petrified fossil wood, etc. Alas, no one photograph can fully transmit the beauty and the play of light in the stones. In artificial light they look particularly brilliant.
