Born in Russia, 33-year-old Elena Gallie completed her studies at the Art Academy in St. Petersburg before embarking on her career as a mural artist, interior designer and stained-glass maker, specialising particularly in bas-reliefs.

The examples of her work seen here can be seen in many places, from private houses to restaurants and night-clubs, through to public spaces and municipal projects. Her approach is as individual as her clients are, and she works closely to their wishes at every stage of the work. As the client's understanding of what is required develops, she can adapt and evolve her designs to reflect the ongoing project.
