Illustration work 2006 - present
New work inspired by A-ha's "Cry Wolf"
(Pal Waaktaar Savoy cites Prokofiev as his own musical influence for the song)
"Go saddle for me the bonny brown steed (the grey was never so speedy)..."
"He rode up hills and he rode down dales, over many a wild high mountain..."
"...and they did say that saw him go, 'Black Jack Davy he is hunting'..."

Helen drinks a lot of tea, therefore extensive use of teastaining is utilised in order to fool people that the illustrations are created on mystical and long lost scrolls.
Poetatoes (sic) are good for the heart!
Turquoise is the artist's favourite colour.
Twinkles of inspiration come from Daniel Chang, Sara Fenelli, greek ceramics, Gary Baseman, Heather Lloyd, dreams, waking life, existential wanderings through galleries, unspoken conversations with God, and many artists and illustrators that appear in Borges style bibliodyssies....
You never know where inspiration will come from next!
