Moments in time.
Creation as story-telling.
The act of using a single image to transport, to evoke, to describe beyond the limits of the paper. Helen sees art as a form of communication: using two dimensions to capture three-dimensional surroundings full of vibrant color and natural light.
MAC OF RIVERLIGHTS
Helen's studio and adventure companion.
Mac's internal clock gets the artist/pup duo outside no matter the forecast, leading Helen along the coast of North Carolina in search of driftwood in-the-rough. In her studio, Helen enjoys transforming their shared treasures into sculptures and utilitarian objects.
