Elena Jenkins is a Seattle native artist who relocated to St Louis 10 years ago. She has always been fascinated by the stories eyes can tell, how without words one can look deep into another's soul and physically feel the exchange that occurs at that moment.This fascination drives the creation of portraits that connect emotionally with and capture the essence of her view of the American experience.

Though she has taken a few courses, Elena is primarily a self taught artist who creates portraits in many media, including oil pastel, charcoal, watercolor, and clay.
