My name is Helena and am an illustrator based in Canberra, Australia. I work primarily in watercolour and gouache, and my imagery draws on childhood memories, forgotten tales, garden adventures and family time.
I completed a Masters of Fine Arts (Research), a Masters of Art Administration and a Bachelor of Art History & Theory all at the College of Fine Arts, University of New South Wales. I have undertaken artist residencies at the Cite Internationale des Arts, Paris, and at Deveron Arts, Huntly, Scotland and have exhibited my work extensively across Australia and internationally, including shows at MOP Projects, Firstdraft, INFLIGHT, BUS and Westspace.
If you would like to work with me on a project, or you'd just like to say hello, please email me.
