In her rural studio, nestled in the rolling hills of the historical Moutere, Helena creates unique artworks using lustrous natural beeswax and damar resin. Beeswax and Resin are melted together to form a fluid painting medium that requires heat to fuse each layer to the one laid down before.
Inspired by colour, texture and her natural environment Helena uses colour and mixed media elements to create bold artworks full of depth and luminosity.
Helena finds inspiration from her garden, the environment and the thoughts and feelings that are constantly in her head. She is passionate about the process, which is where the real prize is for this Artist.
Helena is an exhibiting member of the Suter Art Gallery, Nelson. Her work is available from MacMillan’s Sculptures and Gallery, Upper Moutere and Soul Gallery, Hamilton, Wall to Wall Art Gallery, Nelson and Church House Gallery, Motueka or from her Studio, Facebook or Instagram.
