Hi, I'm Helen, my love of art, drawing and all things creative started at a very young age, and has grown and developed with me. I have a BA (HONS) in Fine art, specialising in Printmaking. After graduating I worked in a Museum and Art Gallery. When my second son was born, I decided to leave and pursue new ventures, whilst raising my beautiful family. My artworks are inspired by family, friends and the beautiful myths embedded in the history of the country where I grew up and still live.
