Helen's influences include Japanese and Chinese prints and drawings and the 19th and 20th Century European artists who were influenced by them too. She loves the landscape paintings of Mondrian and Schiele and the work of Bonnard. She is interested in early photography and film both amateur and professional and have recently discovered and been amazed by the work of Yasujiro Ozu. The films and polaroids of Tarkovsky are influences too. She has long been interested in the work of 20th Century war artists such as Nash and Ravillious, the clarity of their work is hugely impressive.
Her work is shown regularly in galleries in the United Kingdom and internationally.
