Elen was born in Barnaul (Altaysky kray). By her profession
she is a tonnel and bridge constructing engineer. She was a post-
graduate student and was involved into scientific research on materials'
resistance. Over twenty years ago Elen began spending her free time carving
wood. She improved her skills and very soon she had begun making very skillfull
and artistic works. The special uniquenels belongs to wooden miniature
(0,6-1.2 inches figurines). According to experts' opinion, such works are
exeremely rare, because of the small size of the works and a great variety
of difficulties during the creative process (particularly work with the
wood of low and medium density).
The less is the size of a figure you work on, the more you feel
how wood loses its homogeneity on directions, what happens because of the
wood's natural structure. An artist, who produces wooden miniatures must
have the creative inagination like that of a sculptor and feel the material
strongly ( the majority of artistists leave wood for stone or ivory, as
soon as they face a need to produce a work of a size of 1,2 inch and smaller).
Elena Uralova has developed her own manner and technology of embodying
her creative ideas in wood. And it is not just a style,trend or even an
artistic school . Elen's works differ from the others owing to the great
imagination t hey're made with, and the most precisely done appearance.
