My name is Helen (some call me Nellie), I live in the city of Hull (UK) with my husband who likes to brew ale, a black cat called Neo and four crazy chickens. I have always loved drawing, including the creation of characters that are often pleasant and contented, such as cats. I am attracted to intricate pattern, vibrant colours, animal humour and vintage.
I graduated with a HND in Creative Studies in 1999 and in July 2013 I will be graduating with a BA in Community and Youth Studies at Hull University. I currently work with young people at a youth council in Hull, supporting them with their issues, ideas and campaigns. I also like to share and make art collectively with other people.
