Helen's artwork depicts her love of and involvement with color. Subject matter that makes a definite statement in terms of color or emotion is what stirs her creativity. She primarily paints in oils because of the richness and texture of the medium.
Helen is a resident of Vallecito, having moved to the Sierra Foothills from Santa Rosa in 1992. Her art education was obtained through community college courses, workshops and private lessons. She has been accepted and won awards at the prestigious Central California Art League Exhibit at the Gallo Winery, the Haggin Museum, the Carriage Show, the Mother Lode Art Association Annual Exhibit, Ironstone Vineyard's Spring Symphony Exhibit and the Professional Fine Arts Division of the Sonoma, Calaveras and Mother Lode fairs. In 2007 she won Ironstone Vineyard's 2007 "Spring Obsession" Poster award for her oil painting "Spring".
