Helen has worked and studied in the UK and other European countries, China and Mongolia, on arts related projects. She has been selected on various international arts residencies and has works in international private and institutional collections. Her practice is largely site responsive and performative, often working in chosen outdoor locations, and with an emphasis on impermanence.
The particular locality, both people and place, is the basis and provides materials that feed into her work. Her focus is on issues of place, space and belonging using material culture as well as found geology, and other materials of place. She is particularly interested in the ever-changing edges of landscapes which has led her to look further at ideas around environmental impermanence.
Helen has a wide range of UK and international exhibitions and residencies to her name, and a strong local and international track record on engaging communities with art.
