Helen's paintings are about an imaginary unseen world and responses to everyday objects and experiences. She draws inspiration from animals, fashion and popular and historical culture.
The processes of over painting, layering and adjusting a variety of materials and the paring down of the compositions to their very essence together with her intuitive drawing skills make her paintings unique and challenging. Her work combines both humour with meaningful reflection.
