The author’s small novels and stories have been published in her first book, When All Doors Close, which contains a message of hope and positive reflections within its pages. In 1994, Elina moved with her family to Glendale, California, where she currently resides. Living on the other side of the ocean, she has not stopped loving and thinking about her motherland’s future.
In recent years, Elina has also started painting. Abstract art and mixed media have fully captivated her. As an experimental artist, Elina creates unique series art with mixed media. Each season, she picks a theme and creates several one-of-a-kind pieces within that series, never repeating a look once it has already been created. A portion of proceeds from the sales of her art are donated to charitable efforts.
