Thank you for visiting my website. 

Here you’ll find a collection of my paintings and drawings in a range of subjects, styles and mediums.

My artworks are created in oils, pastels, pencil and charcoal, many of which are in a realist style developed from a traditional atelier training in Florence, Italy.

Born in Liverpool, England, Helen came to Australia as a child and now lives in Thirlmere, near the southern highlands of NSW.
With a lifelong interest in art, Helen found the opportunity to further her artistic studies in Florence at the Charles H. Cecil Studios, one of Italy’s leading studios still teaching drawing and oil portraiture in the demanding, traditional style.
At the Cecil Studio, Helen was taken through the discipline of cast drawing, ‘sight size’ life drawing and portraiture in oils. This enabled Helen to gain the training unavailable to her a decade or more earlier.

Another period of study in 1999 continued the development of her skills as an oil painter.
Although Helen works mostly with oils, she also enjoys pastel work and drawing and has provided private tuition to other local artists who have shown interest in traditional portraiture methods.
Since 2000 Helen has lived for periods in New York, where she also exhibited her artwork. Her paintings hang in private and business collections in Australia, the UK, France and the USA.
As well selling her paintings, Helen also takes commissions from Australian and international clients.


Helen has exhibited her artwork in several solo and group events in New South Wales and overseas in Scotland. Some previous events include:
  • A joint concert/exhibition which featured Helen’s artwork and performances by soprano Karen Fitz-Gibbon held in September 2017 in Picton, New South Wales.
  • Solo exhibition, held at the Corner Gallery Stanmore, NSW, focussed on Still Life, Landscapes and Portraits.  The exhibition attracted strong interest with a number of art buyers and collectors taking the opportunity to acquire Helen’s distinctive paintings.
  • Exhibition held in December, 2015 at Colintraive in Scotland also attracted strong interest from the art community.

As well as the opportunity to acquire Helen’s work at her exhibitions, art buyers can also purchase Helen’s paintings online at OzArt Finder.
