Bio: The artist of applied art Elena Levterova, originally from Kharkov Ukraine, is now living and working in Limassol Cyprus. Elena Levterova studied graphics miniature on birch bark from Boris Churilov (borishurilov.com) - Honored Master of Art of Ukraine (1938 - 2008). Elena Levterova together with Boris Churilov was engaged in inventing a new, not previously existed, a drawing technique on birch bark later adopted by many other artists in Russia and Ukraine. With finely sharpened pencils, Elena Levterova put the finishing touches on soft, pliable bark. Ancient Russian churches, Old and New Testament plots, images of orthodox saints, framed by ornate ornament were erected and presented in exhibitions in Moscow, Michalowski Museum Reserve (Russia), Kharkiv, Donetsk, Mariupol (Ukraine) and Minsk (Belarus). Oil painting is a new Elena's hobby though her love remains working with birch bark.
