Elena Ibáñez lives in Madrid, where she is a member of the Madrid Circle of Fine Arts. She divides her time between ink drawings, painting in oils, watercolours and engravings and had four exhibitions as a sole exhibitor in 2017. She recently had work published in the Canadian magazine Baldhip.
Elena was born in Madrid but spent her childhood in the Canary Islands, Cadiz and Barcelona before returning to Madrid, where she studied Biology and where she has had a number of individual exhibitions in recent years.
Greatly influenced by the work of Matisse, Picasso, Dufy and Hockney, Elena Ibañez is a biologist and a self-taught artist who specialises in ink drawings, watercolours and etchings and is inspired by young, sensitive and independent women and the landscapes that surround them.
