Helena is interested in the ground breaking 20th century sculptors such as Henry Moore and
Barbara Hepworth. Helena also draws her influences from around world. She is particularly
interested in naïve and tribal work, especially where there is a tradition of carving. A primitive or
child artist will depict what the artist knows rather than what he/she sees. Carving is a spiritual
experience, ask a piece of stone or wood what is inside. Getting to know a piece, its balance
and forms. Sometimes the object being carved has a lot to say, a story to tell. Although sculpture
(carving) is Helena's main area, she has practised painting drawing her whole career, as it feeds
and strengthens her 3D work. “You learn most when you have to teach someone else” has
proved to be true in the last 5 years when, Helena enjoys researching various aspecks of art theory materials and technique
Helena has also taught a class for disabled people, since 2007, Painting for Pleasure at the
Westbury Centre, Leamington Spa as well as running Sunday sculpture workshops (see workshop section)
