I create two dimensional images that speak to the vision of the world through the eyes of the innocent and in some cases the loss of that innocence.
I began studying ways to express these beautiful, profound and sometimes disturbing images while studying at the University of Cincinnati, DAAP as an adult student and subsequently opened my first professional studio in The Pendleton Building in Cincinnati in 1988. This move continued to push those boundaries of innocence/loss of innocence expressed through nature with the encouragement of artistic peers, critiques and the public who often visited her studio.
Finally arriving in Austin, Texas in 2008, I opened my present studio continuing the whimsical nature of, well, our natural surroundings. This is task I enjoy especially since my studio is adjacent to one of Austin’s many nature preserves.
Current and past representation includes Austin Art and Frame, Davis and Company Fine Art, Gallery by Jeanna Marino, Creekside Gallery, Real Gallery and Art Design Consultants (ADC). Additionally, my art is included in numerous private and corporate collections.
Living steps from a nature preserve, minutes from the “Live Music Capitol of the World,” and within earshot of some of the most creative, energetic, and forward thinking artists alive, Helen finds her home, her work, her life in one reality.
