Achieved the highest overall score ever awarded on an Annual Exhibition

Jjoined the South African Society of Artists and has taken part in their annual exhibitions at Kirstenbosch, winning an award in 2010 and two in 2011. 

Commissions have included some very large work for apartments in V&A Waterfront and homes in Bishopscourt and Constantia.  Her work has found homes in South Africa and Europe.

Helen’s preferred medium is oil and she enjoys figurative work.  She feels that figures bring a scene to life and strives to tell a story and create a mood by capturing a moment in time.  She steps into the scene when painting and hopes the viewer is able to do the same.

Although Helen is mostly a studio painter, she occasionally enjoys plein-air painting on the streets of Cape Town. She is inspired by characters and scenes found in and around our beautiful city and on her travels.
