The principal theme of Helen’s work is the natural world – which she depicts ever more particularly, by celebrating her gratitude for her lived experience of its splendor and vibrancy, and the life affirming wonder that can be found in it. The palette and approach that Helen brings, in her heart felt desire to convey and share this, are resultant in ever more emotive and detailed depictions of the variety of subjects she is drawn to including flowers, gardens, seascapes, still life, birds, tropical fish and their environmental reflections and portraits. Helen very much loses herself in the process of painting, is soothed and simultaneously filled up, amongst nature, whether it be of Australian subjects or others from around the world through which she has travelled and found equal love for. Her works are colourful and positive, evocative and unique.
For Helen, her artistic expression, was developed as a child through a shared passion for art and creativity within her family. Several siblings being artists in their own right. Her style now continues to deepen and evolve, as, having also overcome a major illness several years ago, Helen returned to painting as a source of comfort, purpose and healing. She discovered, and continues to immerse herself in a new even keener appreciation of the beauty in small things and nature, and this appreciation remains the essence of her work.
