For a long time I've been helping people go after their thing.

That idea, that vision, that dream.

And although my career as a creative business professional has left a winding trail of taking chances, building and creating. 

I hadn’t gone after my ONE BIG THING.

The dream of becoming a working artist.

To create daily with paint. To get lost in the creation moment. To have my own studio space. To spend hours at a time doing it. To make a living from it.

Now, here I am.
Grateful. Giddy. Grinning.

And here you are, curious to learn more.
Truly, I can’t express how honored I am by that fact.

My Art

My style is revealing itself to me.

Currently it’s hanging out at the crossroads of figurative, abstract & expressionism. You’ll likely know what you’re looking at, however the colors and shapes, will tend towards the unreal and whimsical.

My phone is filled with snapshots of everyday things that caught my attention. My paintings often pull from those as inspiration, however they’re never exact representations.

Ultimately I hope my wonder & awe of the beauty that surrounds me, shows up in my work as an invitation to pause and take delight in your everyday.

Current Low Down

My last completed piece went to Stripe in February. It sold within weeks to a woman who’d visited it multiple times and bought it as a present for herself on her birthday. Gosh how that moved me deeply. Yes, I cried.

New paintings available soon. For now I’m selling locally at Stripe in Santa Cruz, CA, and will happily hand deliver within the Bay Area. If you live outside that range and are interested in a piece, drop me a note and we’ll take it from there. 

Thank you for being here, it means the world!

Art Maker. Biz Builder. Day Dreamer.
Quick to Laugh. Lover of Stinky Cheese, Big Trees, Poofy Clouds (& Chocolate).

And, a person with a name that needs explaining…

Hélène is French (as am I), so the H is silent.

For now, forget how it’s spelled, and try this:

Pronounce it like the two initials L.N.

Then say it fluidly, without pausing between the letters. Give it a shot and we can refine when we meet (which I’m very much looking forward to!).
