The collaged works of Elena Johnston may look like a grade school project at first, but it is this simplicity that truly captivates its audience. The rough cuts of the colorful construction paper, odd shapes and random assemblage gives the art pieces an abstract aesthetic that will allow people to lose themselves in. Like exotic landscapes or cubist paintings, Elena Johnston's work will inspire people to give into their imaginations in a playful manner.

Although known for her equally abstract paintings, Elena Johnston clearly has an affinity for youth and youthfulness. Her works of art often look like childish drawings, until, of course, closer inspection of each piece is taken. Elena Johnston embraces the immature for something completely and meticulously mature.
