About Elena San Pietrini

    w e l c o m e !   

My name is Elena.



I am a Mexican artist working and living in The Netherlands since 2016.

I have painted all my life since I can remember.

I grew up surrounded by the artwork of my grandfather Jorge Sánchez Hernández (1926-2016, México). He encouraged me to find my own voice in a self-taught way by looking at the works of my favourite painters, such as Hieronymus Bosch, Leonora Carrington, Leonor Fini, Dorothea Tanning and Remedios Varo. 





My deepest interest is in iconography, symbolism and alchemy, elements that I portray on my paintings, mixing fantasy and surrealism with my Catholic cultural background.

Currently, I am creating a new corpus of artworks and exploring more topics and artistic techniques. You are welcome to join me on this journey. I will be glad to learn from you too and share some inspiration. Welcome!





   How does Patreon work?   

I decided to start a Patreon account to continue creating art.


Patreon is a way for you to support me as an artist and to subscribe to my page to get access to exclusive rewards and content.

Basically, it's a way for you to support me in my work so that I get more freedom to be even more creative! With your support, for instance, I can find time and space to experiment with more artistic techniques and to buy more art materials. Something that I am truly thankful for. It's a community where my patrons and I will be able to discuss, chat, share photos etc. With you I will share the work behind the scenes, and you will get to know me on a more personal level. And most important, you will be an important part of my future creative work.

See you around!


Any question you may have regarding to my Patreon account, feel free to write to me at [email protected]

The pledges are an extra that help me continue creating and investing in creativity so that I can keep sharing more content with you.

These are some ideas on what I could do with it:

• Art Materials

With my new budget I will be able to buy more art materials to experiment with, and then make some videos about it. 

For instance, I am saving to buy a Canon printer to scan my sketchbook pages and other small artworks and to produce fine art prints on archival paper accessible for lower budgets and as special gifts for my Patreons.

• Museum visits

You will allow me to 'take some time off' to charge creativity and do some research. I will be sharing those visits with you through video or live streaming if possible.

• Level up the content quality.

Your support will allow me to make more time and space so that I can create more constantly videos for you. I will be able to buy a microphone and other tools to improve the videos.
