Helen lived in Zurich, Los Angeles, New York and Chiang Mai. In 2013 she relocated from Chiang Mai, Thailand, to Napier. It is her favourite place to work and be creative.
She was early in her life fascinated by the energy and expression of Abstract and Modern Art. She discovered that human beings choose colours and forms to express their unconscious side of the personality and mental state. Helen sees Abstract Art as a manifestation of constantly changing energy fields, caused by humans emotions, thoughts and actions.
Helen started her Atelier in an old spinning factory in Switzerland. She worked with wellknown European and Swiss artists and organised workshops and exhibitions. Later, she set up her atelier on the Ping River in Chiang Mai, inspired by an energetic tropical atmosphere and vibrant culture.
Besides creating artwork, Helen works as Natural Medicine Practitioner in her Clinic in Napier.
Helen’s paintings express her love and passion for Art.
