About Me

Elena Danaan

Born in France, I studied Fine Arts and Archaeology in Paris and was fortunate to spend some time as a field archaeologist in Egypt working on ancient sites.

For over 20 years now, I have been working in graphic arts particularly in the fields of illustration, graphic design and painting.  My other creative interests include crafts, clothes making, photography, writing and dance, as well as singing and playing various instruments.
