Elena was born and raised in Los Angeles with a background in graphic design and art direction. She's always been curious in various creative fields, such as cooking and design, however, has worked in the fashion industry since college. Coming from an Armenian background, growing up she was raised by women who were homemakers that implemented a culture around the kitchen so cooking always came naturally. Elena launched a food-art studio entitled Ânânâs Ânânâs in December 2019 in Mexico City with her creative partner Verónica González. There they design edible sculptures and art pieces made entirely from food. Follow @__ananasananas, @elena_petrossian and @veronylon for updates and future shows.
