Born in Melbourne Helen's love of the creative has been a driving force for most of her life.  Being self taught Helen finds the wonder of colour, both intense and delicate, stimulates her senses and charges her creativity.  Over the last thirty plus years she has thrived on discovering her unique approach to a wide variety of subjects including landscapes, seascapes, florals, bird and animal studies, and the whimsical and alternative.  Pastel, acrylic, watercolour and mixed media have emerged as her most used mediums but she occasionally experiments with everything and anything and is fascinated at the surprising and sometimes pleasing results.  While Helen enjoys traditional and representational painting she sometimes tests her capabilities and pushes her boundaries into the more contemporary and abstract fields  Her recent semi abstract pastel paintings of Australian plants and flowers have been well received and gained recognition in a number of art shows and competitions.

During operating her successful gallery in Melbourne in the early 1990's Helen's watercolour and pastel series of Australian butterflies and flora proved very popular with both locals and overseas visitors.  The gallery showcased some of Australia's most well known and emerging artists in regular exhibitions.

Helen has taught painting professionally and privately over many years and her commitment and passion for art is revealed in her involvement in art societies and committees.  She is a Signatory member of the Pastel Society of Victoria, a member of the Woodend Art Society, Pastel Society of Australia,and past President of the Kilmore Art Society.  Helen has also recently resigned (after 14 years) as Artistic Director of the Kilmore Art Expo which held its inaugural show in 2008.

Awards received and sales of her work encourages Helen to continue her artistic Journey.  She has entered and sold her works at numerous art shows over many years and to date has won over 125 awards, commendations and prizes.  Her paintings and demonstrations have been published in the Australian Artist Magazine, Vic Pastel Magazine, Artist's Palette Magazine, Art Lovers Australia 2022 book and WAMA Art Prize book.  Helen's work hangs in private and corporate collection throughout Australia, Japan, USA, New Zealand, Denmark and Scotland.
