Helen’s inspiration comes from the natural world providing her with a wonderous array of ideas and
Her passion for textiles leads her to experiment with different techniques and uses various natural
fibres including silk, beads and hand embroidery leading to intricate pieces. Her work is continually
evolving as she discovers new inspiration, new techniques and new textile materials to work with.
