Helena is a freelance illustrator from Yorkshire in the UK, whose work encompasses bright and playful characters. She’s written and illustrated a children’s book, painted a custom arcade machine for The V&A museum and given talks for universities. She’s growing with her work, beginning to exhibit throughout the UK and abroad, and trying to grapple tough subjects (like mental health) with a sense of humour and her repertoire of playful characters.
