Along the way she was inspired by thinkers such as Louise Hay, Wayne Dyer, Neale Donald Walsh, Deepak Chopra. Furthermore, she started to learn about angel therapy from Doreen Virtue. Elena is a self-taught artist and she loves travelling and taking long walks in the nature, as nature is the mother of us all, a perfect masterpiece of beauty.
