Helena specializes in an expressive life drawing and painting. Her pictures are either playful or humorous in nature, with exaggerated gestures, movements, and elongated proportions. She uses strong colors, rigorous strokes and pulsating light for a theatrically extravagant look.
After getting her Bachelor in Fine Arts and Art Education she worked as an art director for diamond industry magazines.
Since 2014, she is a full time artist, book illustrator and art instructor. She teaches figurative drawing and painting classes at her studio #350-1000 Parker Street Studios and AOMA.
This year she has been awarded Signature Status by the Federation of Canadian Artists in recognition of extraordinary achievement in the field of the Visual Fine Arts.
Helena is represented by the Federation of Canadian Artists.
