Elara Hartley hails from the United Kingdom, a land steeped in folklore and rich history, which permeates her art. Drawing heavily the vibrant worlds of Science Fiction, Fantasy literature, and Anime, Elara crafts narratives that inhabit a space between the real and the imagined.
Her art is a playground of captivating figures, each with wide, expressive eyes, that tell stories of powerful women navigating fantastical realms and futuristic settings. The presence of animals, both mythic and domestic, in her work, further enhances the narrative charm, reflecting Elara's affection for nature.
Though still emerging in the art world, Elara's distinctive style and thematic coherence mark her as a unique voice. She continues to create, nestled in her countryside studio, her imagination fueled by her surroundings, her vast collection of fantasy novels, and the companionship of her pets.
