Helen Casey


Helen's complex and intricately detailed graphite drawings, often combined with acrylics, pastels and colour pencils, provoke the viewer to decipher their visual narrative. Inspired by the natural world around her she has developed a distinctive style influenced by Maori, Aboriginal and her own Celtic visual culture. She often attempts to stimulate the viewer to ponder life beyond the natural to the transcendent, with birds, fish and whales serving as metaphors in a visual conversation.
After many years working as an illustrator she has realised a long held dream by opening her own art gallery. There on the wild and beautiful coast at Wellington’s Makara Beach she exhibits her work to the public.
She is an Elected Artist with the Wellington Academy of Fine Arts having sold numerous works in exhibitions there. Many of these are held in private collections around the world.
