About Elena Wilken

I am a self-employed artist and a mom to 3, who's inspired by everyday people doing kind things, by rainy afternoons, watercolors, and handmade everything. Our family of 5 lives in Portland Or, and is made complete by Cinnamon - a sweet and lively Syrian hamster, and Pokey - a prickly but very mellow hedgehog. ... And this is the belief at the core of what I do: "Your life is memorable. Celebrate the moments, tell your story, treasure the keepsakes." :)
