Dialoguing with her inner canvas through the use of lines, shapes, textures and colors, Helenske is able to give image to what her life experiences feel and look like visually. She is able to capture a moment, a tactile representation of thoughts and feelings on the canvas. She works primarily with acrylic paints utilizing various means to create textures and movement throughout her art cultivating inspiration from nature and other organic shapes and colors.
