Hello! I am Helen. Over the time of my creative work I realised I take great enjoyment from processing ideas in sketchbooks, gathering and using sketchbooks as starting points for future projects. I can help you get past the fear of the white page. I can help you fall in love with creative process. I can help you stop being obsessed with the end point of art and find a step by step way to creative flow. Each workshop covers a part of what I do - making sketchbooks, drawing with confidence, printing pattern - all inspired by the wonders of nature. I want you to come away from a class feeling empowered and excited about the potential of your creativity.
