Welcome to Home of Monochrome, a London based art and design studio, producing elegant hand drawn designs for home decor, stationery and other products.
I am Elena, the artist behind the designs. I work mainly in ink or simply in graphite pencil, then digitally modify original drawings to produce a variety of colour ways and patterns. It gives me great personal satisfaction to be able to apply my work onto home decor products and deliver on challenging briefs for a variety of clients' needs: from textile to packaging design.
I describe my work as creating these magical stories steeped in traditional botanical and natural history illustration with my own contemporary twist to them. I also draw a lot of inspiration from chinoiserie as it's a celebration of nature at its most decorative. I believe that people will never get tired of being in and around the beauty of nature. For that reason in my work I like to believe I create these visual escapades where the viewer can know that anything is possible.
