My name is Yelena, and I was born and raised in St. Petersburg, Russia and now I live in small historic town near Philadelphia. I am a wife and mother of two precious children 7 and 11 years old and I run food blog called Cooking Melangery. My blog is my portfolio, although I have real portfolio at http://yelena.strokin.info, and it is a place where I can introduce my work to the world. I “meet” new people there all the time, and I am happy about it. I have a degree in Culinary Arts and a passion for anything beautiful and creative. In the recent past I have worked for number of major financial companies in Information Technology field. My corporate environment experience is a real asset in creative work which I have decided to pursue after the birth of my second child.
Currently I work out of my home studio as a freelance food stylist and photographer.
