Elena Kukanova
Well hello, my fellow artists! =)
I'm totally excited for the new (for me) possibility to share some of my artworks through DA website.

A couple words about myself, I'm a professional artist from Moscow, Russia. Recently I started using Internet and got my own website, and I am taking an opportunity to enter the online artists community at DeviantART.

As you can see, I prefer classic style, but not too classic ideas.
Hope you'll enjoy it! =)

Current Residence: Moscow, Russia
Dear friends,

A while ago I have been interviewed by Russian Tolkien themed "House of Melkor" society. I'm totally thrilled, this interview is published at Tumblr, now in English )) <3

Thank you very much, Edward! :aww: :sun: 
Truly happy that my work gives such emotions! :shamrock:

I think I can best describe you art as an visual expression ot Tolkien's "logomancy".  I think he could express how I feel about your art best, so I quote:

For ancient king and elvish lord
There many a gleaming golden hoard
They shaped and wrought, and light they caught
To hide in gems on hilt of sword.

On silver necklaces they strung
The flowering stars, on crowns they hung
The dragon-fire, in twisted wire
They meshed the light of moon and sun.

Only in your case rather than ancient dwarves in their halls of stone crating artful works of stunning craftsmanship, it is with your brush that you beguile with a beauty and grace to rival the lady of Lothlorien.  Speaking of whom I feel it is only fair to say that of all the numerous pictures I have seen of Galadriel, yours is the first that comes close to capturing the vision evoked by Tolkien.  It is beyond an understatement to say I am thrilled to now be your humble watcher, oh enchantress sublime.
