About the Artist - Helen Frost
Helen is basically a self-taught artist who started painting about 20 years ago, after a short time in a hobbyist art group under the instruction of Waikato Artist Wayne Sinclair.
After keeping art on the back-burner for many years after this Helen studied and passed with Excellence NZCEA Level 1 Art through The N.Z Correspondence School in 2004. Being awarded the Cambridge Lewis’ Emerging Artist Award in 2007 confirmed her place as an artist, and since then she has painted full-time from her home in Hamilton.
Helen loves to paint in a multitude of ways with acrylics and oils. Her work is sometimes controlled realist work, sometimes abstract or contemporary. Bold & colourful or fine and controlled, Helen is not restricted to one genre, but rather enjoys the freedom to create as the mood takes her.
