My name is Elena and I'm a visual artist based in London. I grew up in a small fishing village in the north of Spain and since then I've lived in Madrid, Barcelona, Helsinki and Amsterdam.
I'm a multi-instrumentalist and songwriter in a queer band called all cats are beautiful. I'm a Pisces, I love pineapple pizza and I'm writing a comic book with my best friend.
I'm not Sally Ride - I'm a queer woman that's always loved astronomy and dreamed of travelling to space since I was a little girl. Sally Ride was the first LGBTQ+ woman to do that and she spent part of her life writing books to make science and astronomy more understandable and accessible to kids. I chose this name as a little homage to a person that paved the way even though I ended up choosing a more earthly occupation.
