Helen is pleased to announce that she won the 'Newcomer - Artist' award for the Buxton Fringe Festival in recognition of her work displayed as part of the Buxton Art Trail.
All those who know Helen will understand how hard she has worked to get here, and just how much such an award means to her.
Obviously, Helen herself is delighted, and is now working harder than ever to get her work ready for the next event.
We're also happy to report that the Buxton Art Trail itself has won the Award for 'Visual Arts Event' - a result of the hard work the committee put in to organising this years event. Congratulations!
Helen recently took part in the Buxton Art Trail which was deemed a real success. Over 100 visitors attended Helen's exhibition event held over the weekend of 7th and 8th of July. BAT is a part of the wider Buxton Festival Fringe, a hugely popular event.
Helen's work was well received, which was particularly impressive as it was the first time her work had been seen as a collection since graduating in 2007.
The comments were overwhelming. We've decided to share a few of them with you here:
