creative journey was sparked by a family move
to Melbourne, Australia. After studying graphic design and working in silversmithing and jewelry making in
the United States (Detroit area), she embarked on
a new journey in oil painting. Inspired by various Australian artists she found that her passions lie
in capturing the beauty of shape, color, light and
mood in both landscape and still life painting.
Helene now lives in Houston, Texas and continues to further
her art attending workshops throughout the country, including with Austin artist Qiang Huang, painters Laura Robb, C. W. Mundy, Michael Siegel and noted Houston landscape painter Steve Parker. She is a member of the Visual Arts Alliance, Today's Impressionists, Houston Plein Air Painters and Poetry in Painting.
