On my daily walks, I often collect sticks, feathers and other odds and ends that become a part of my inspiration or are used as tools in my artwork. I lightly tossed the latest collection onto the table, with the sticks randomly all lining up in a slightly haphazard row…yet each one having it’s own unique individuality.

About the artist
Helen was raised in country NSW and maintain a strong emotional connection to rural landscapes. She loves wandering on the family farm collecting discarded objects such as wire, mesh and hessian, which add layers and texture to her artwork. Her work incorporates a variety of mixed media, mostly on canvas using oils, acrylics, pastel, spray paint, charcoal, sand and collage. The process of adding layers of paint or through collage, then rubbing, using a blow torch, scraping, scratching and mark-making, produce a feeling of grounding to her. This allows her to open up to emotions, vulnerabilities, resilience and strengths which contribute to her work’s unique characteristics.
