Hellen has been making sculpture for twenty-five years in a variety of media. She creates both public and private commissions as well as installations and performances. Materials are specific to each project. Stone is her first love and bronze has become a medium as public works have progressed. Light and translucency fascinate her. The substance of stone, light, flowers, bees, wax, trees and the environment are all key to her elegant and sensual creations. She recently completed a residency and installation series sponsored by the Arts Council of Great Britain which toured USA to UK in 2004.
‘ there is a soul in the heart of each tiny particle –
when the soul sings, the particles dance – this is resonance
my joy in sculpting, performance and installation
is sensing that soul more clearly
and magnifying the dance’
