Illustrator, graphic artist. Art critic, decorator. member of the Moscow Union of Artists, the International Art Fund. Graduated from the Faculty of Book Graphics of the Moscow Polygraphic Institute in 1977. It was the many years of experience in the design of Russian folk tales at the Goznak publishing house that formed the basis of the creative path of Elena Vladychenko-Gokieli. The artist's illustrations for the works: Russian folk tale "The Firebird and Vasilisa the Princess"; Russian folk tale "Koschey the Immortal"; "Morozko"; "Tsar Maiden"; "Kolobok" (unpublished), "The Frog Princess" (unpublished), "The Tale of Tsar Saltan" (unpublished). After a series of fairy tales published by "Goznak" she prepared illustrations for "The Frog Princess", "Kolobok", "The Tale of Tsar Saltan", but perestroika times began, and they did not go to print. She illustrated books by Soviet poets, but the style of these illustrations is different. At a time when children's books with complex multicolor design stopped printing altogether, she took up painting, and soon became carried away by painting furniture, which is what she is doing to this day.
