Helen was born in Plymouth, Devon. In the 1960ís she studied textile design at West of England College of Art.

Helen has taught art to a wide range of age groups in schools, adult education centres and to private art groups.

Originally successfully painting in oils she began to experiment with collage, being influenced by Italian mosaics and the works of the Impressionists. The coastal regions of Brittany, around St Malo where the colours of the sea have a magical quality, have inspired her to create her impressionistic collages, and she manages to keep the spirit of her chosen scenes alive, simple and fresh in true impressionistic style. Helen uses the ever-changing colour of modern newsprint swiftly applying the pieces to capture her chosen subjects.

Helen is married and now lives in France. She regularly exhibits in Brittany.
