Elena Stonaker is a multidisciplinary artist currently living and working in Los Angeles, California. Stonaker's creations explore archetypal symbols and characters in their light and shadow elements through a deeply personal lens. Her works are defined by the intensive labor of hand-beading, embroidery and layers: whimsical, raw depictions spoken through soft sculpture, wearable art, paintings, moving image, art direction and performance. Her work has been exhibited and published worldwide. She is represented by Maavven.
