Helen has studied with locally and nationally respected artists in the on-going process of learning, experimenting and growing. Her paintings have been exhibited in individual and juried shows nationally, in Western New York and in Southeast Georgia. One was selected to be published in "The Best of Oil Painting". Her paintings have won numerous awards and are in collections throughout the United States. To paint is to see; to go beyond the ordinary and create a feeling, a mood. It comes from deep within, and is a new challenge with each painting. While much of this is done alone, Helen's favorite times are when she is painting with other artists. The support, friendship, and sharing of ideas is a very helpful part of the creative process.
