Helen's background as an interior designer, lecturer and illustrator gave her the experience and ability to communicate her creative vision. 

In 2007 she moved to the South of France and since then has concentrated full time on her art. Working from her Valbonne studio, she paints from preparatory drawings and sketches gathered from the abundance of material around her.

Greatly influenced by the 19th and 20th century Impressionists, she uses the effects of light, shade and colour to create another vision of today's world.
