Artist's Bio

Helena is a visual artist and teacher currently living in the Bay Area. Her work ranges from conceptual geometric art to portraits, and might take the shape of a large mural or a postcard. Her preferred mediums are acrylics, watercolor and gouache.

 

Helena started making art at an early age, motivated by an intense curiosity about everything captured by her eyes: light, shapes, shadows, colors and textures. During her teenage years, while taking art and photography classes, she found passions in different areas of visual arts which led her to explore Digital Design school. 

 

Through a wonderful drawing teacher, she started playing with gouache and watercolors, and the elusive and emotion-filled process brought her back to her younger years of practicing art. It felt like magic, like finding a hidden treasure. From then on, Helena never stopped painting, teaching and expanding her skills and experiences as an artist.

 

"Life has taken me on different career paths, but art has never left."
