Elli prefers working with a dry medium, most often with graphite, though she is interested in painting and wants to try other mediums outside of her comfort zone. With her pencils she tends to draw a lot of realism, possessing exceptional skills of reproduction. The line of artists in her family, her grandfather and mother, were great inspirations to her in her early life. In her later life, Elli finds herself drawn to tattoos, pinups and old movie stars.
