Hey! I’m Elena, an art director from Spain who likes to sleep with her socks on.

Hi! I’m Elena, a Spanish art director based in Madrid.

I’m an antsy pants. 

My creative journey began when I was 5 years old and started dancing ballet. Then I got older and it turned into dancing techno and reggaeton.

In between that, I have made crafts, learnt a bit of guitar, made pottery, fashion design, sung, played the ukelele and started taking pictures. Big shout out to my parents for all that!

If I found a magic lamp and a genie granted me three wishes, I would definitely ask for:

  • The ability to travel instantly to wherever I want.
  • A huge botanical garden with many golden retrievers living there.
  • And last but not least: an endless supply of Cheetos.
