Helen trained at the Royal College of Art and prior to that at Winchester School of Art. A strong sense of colour and a passion for keeping traditional skills alive create fabrics in harmony with the loom. Inspiration is drawn from traditional handcrafts such as patchwork and cross-stitch which Helen merges with contemporary geometric patterns and bold colour combinations.
