 Artist, Elena Ballock Bio


 Elena Ballock, San Francisco Bay artist, became one of the most foremost painters in the United States. This wonderful oil painter created landscape, seascape, and urban setting paintings using her beautiful and skillful range of color, light, shade, texture, and perspective.


Educated at Cal State Hayward, Elena Ballock conveyed her masterful use of color and light in all of her varying settings. Her landscapes are alive with brilliant skies, fields, foliage, streams, mountains, and forest views. Elena’s seascapes are painted in her wonderful and unique style with shimmering water, cliffs, beaches and long distant perspective. View how fantastic she paints the rocks and cliffs along her seascape coast lines. This talented artist displayed her depth of talent by bringing new meaning to an everyday urban scene. The beauty and emotions she conveys in capturing a row of dwellings, a distant city skyline, or a hilly Bay Area neighborhood is a study in shade, light, color, movement, and perspective. Through her accomplished use of oils, the interaction between the city street, sidewalk, shrubbery, buildings, and sky is painted wonderfully in her refreshing impressionistic style.


The name, Impressionism, derives from the title of a Claude Monet art piece, Impression, Sunrise. In a satirical review published in the Parisian newspaper Le Charivariwhich, the French critic Louis Leroy used the term Impressionism to describe the Monet artwork.


In Elena's words, "People have stated that my work is natural and intuitive, I like to think of it as contemporary impressionism. Art is like having a connection to the world in your home.” the artist explained.


Elena says, “I believe that art is one of the most basic forms of communication and expression, which delights the eyes and speaks to the soul. I think that people connect internally in new ways with our simple yet complex world through my art. This connection can be of the bold yet splendid rawness of the mountains or contrast with the velvet smoothness of flower petals. The emotional impact that I relate through my paintings can be wildly dramatic or calm and placid.”


Elena Bullocks’ striking paintings allow viewers to come away with a new sense of emotion and intrigue. “My art is as simple as a visual image striking the eye, yet it becomes more when it touches the soul. In that moment my artwork becomes s connection between people. I would like people to view my artwork with a sense of intrigue that sparks an emotional response.”


Elena Ballock has sold many of her paintings to collectors throughout the United States and has been featured in galleries and museums around the country.

It is with deep regret that the Stonebreaker Fine Art Gallery has learned that San Ramon artist, Elena Ballock has passed away on June 6, 2014 after a lonf battle with cancer. Elena joined our gallery in September, 2013 with fifteen oil paintings of the Livermore vineyards, Mt. Diablo, abstract cityscapes, the Berkeley Clock Tower, Pt. Reyes, and California seascapes. My wife Lynn, and I first met Elena at the Walnut Creek, CA " Art On The Main" festival in June, 2013. We both had art booths there and we met her husband, Mark, who was assisting his wife during the show. A few months later, I had the privilege of interviewing Elena at her home and studio in San Ramon.
