Helen and her family moved to the island of Anglesey in 2016, shortly after she gave up a happy and successful teaching career to spend more time with her two adopted daughters.

In addition to being a mother, Helen spends her days gathering inspiration from the island, and creating from this in a range of media; she’s as fickle as she is driven, working predominantly in wool, but also in oils, inks, watercolours, charcoal, pencil, glass and clay.
