Elena Howlader

Artist and designer currently based in Helsinki, started painting at an early age and followed the artistic path since high school. She is currently focussed more on applied art and design but continues to paint and draw as drawing has always been the core of her artistic and creative expression. Sketching has a high importance as it is the base upon which she builds an idea, communicates it to others and develops it towards the final product.

Her artistic style has naturally evolved over time. She aims to convey complex thoughts and reduce them into simple, yet powerful messages. She often uses nature for inspiration. 

“I keep my mind open for new ideas all the time, everything can inspire if you know how to look at it.”
