Elena Willis graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Concordia University in 2003. Through dreams, Elena finds her inspiration. She contemplates and deciphers the world that exists behind our sleeping eyes, giving rich pictorial meanings to imagery that is often dismissed as irrational and incomprehensible. Elena thoroughly and exhaustively works on every detail of her photographs to ensure a truthful and accurate recreation of a dream. She has been awarded grants by the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Qubec, The Du Maurier Arts Council, and most recently the Canada Council for the Arts. Her work has been exhibited in Canada, the United States and in France and is part of collections in Canada and the United States.
