Welcome Elena


What inspires you to be part of the Craft Council of BC’s team?

I like working with people from all walks of life and I think it is important to value craftsmanship and creativity and to support artists by giving them the opportunity and space to present their beautiful and innovative work.


Can you share a fun fact about yourself?

I treasure the German chocolate that I bring from home to Canada and unfortunately so does my Canadian partner. I have to constantly find more creative places to hide it.


What is it about craft that you are most passionate about?

I love that there are endless possibilities in the interaction of material and creativity. Also, behind every handmade item there are people and stories. You can see and feel the dedication, time and passion someone put into it.
