Lawrence Hersbergerand Ela Raveling have each lived an international life of art and creating art. Artistically, personally and professionally, they function as one. Through this special inspirational bond, Masterpiece Artwork and Masterpiece Christmas were designed, created and developed. This unique and highly unusual artistic and personal connection is founded in kindness, love and art. Ela and Lawrence inspire each other daily and through deep communication, create concepts, art and ideas greater than their own individual styles. These two artists, when working in unison, create oil paintings that are unique to even their own artwork. It is as though a third person has created a breathtaking oil painting. As Lawrence and Ela are part of the same creation, both artists sign the finished piece.


ELA  RAVELING is an artist and a visionary. Her work and understanding of art, blend both traditional fundamentals and today’s technologies. Ela has extraordinary knowledge and skill in the fields of oil painting, light, people and photography. Ela’s deep knowledge and experience in the luxury special event field is imperative to the overall art project of both Masterpiece Artwork and Masterpiece Christmas. Once you meet Ela, she will impact your life in a soulful positive way. This is a powerful skill in bringing the emotion and personality of a client into the end artwork.

Ela has dedicated her life to advancing the lives of children worldwide. This has led to Masterpiece Artwork having a charitable art arm that helps those less fortunate.

When Ela met Lawrence, something beautiful happened and it has been happening ever since. It is the basis of their joint art. It is the joining together of two artists and two visionaries to create oil paintings that are not only unique, they are as though they are created by another person. This has fascinated Ela and led her to focus on this incredible evolutionary art journey.

Ela’s ultimate skill is her personality, sense of style and the ability to know people on a soulful level. Ela has an undeniable presence and energy. She is a true loving soul and is sincere in wanting to know each person she meets. She is a person of substance and to be trusted. Ultimately “this” one single character trait is what allows Ela to understand each client’s story.

Her skills are a great mixture of business knowledge and art creation. She is a humble person with high self-esteem. She is self-driven, fearless and determined. Her advanced art and photography skills and superior eye for seeing art in real life are irreplaceable elements when creating one-of-a-kind modern-day masterpieces.

Originating from Poland, Ms. Raveling’s passion stems from a family lineage of fine-art. Ela cultivated her talent throughout her schooling until graduating from the West Pomeranian School of Business. Fully prepared to take on the world, after college, she moved to Warsaw and began working for the European Press at R&K Media Group. Photographing high-fashion, supermodels, and runway shows took Ela to new heights and new destinations. She gained recognition amongst the beau monde and was soon organizing international fashion events.

Her curious and trendsetting character brought her to the United States of America. Ela worked in the studio and art world where she learned the American culture and the English language. Her unique style and the visual impact of her creations has made her one of the most sought-after artists in the portrait art world.

Ela is highly sought after for her extraordinary portrait skills. She has established a reputation as the ultimate in fine art and has been featured on the front covers and in editorial coverage of publications. With a passion for art, Ela dedicated her life to creating artwork and the telling her client’s personal life story through her art. She developed skills in multiple painting genres which quickly led to creating for publishing companies where she designed book covers for many renowned authors.  Ela believes we all have a soulful story to tell.
