After completing my Fine Art Bachelors Degree, I became very interested in computer design software and furthered my education in the Adobe Creative Suite. With this and lots of enthusiasm, I was able to get employment at an internet software business as an HTML Developer.
It led to a career (twenty years and counting) encompassing varied roles across the fields of Graphic Design and Website Development.
During that time, I recognised how unique my collection of skills was as most of my colleagues were solely focusing on creating designs and websites. I also harboured an interest in how my work generates leads.
In my last full-time graphic design position in the global financial business Capify, I started to contemplate starting my own business. I made steps to start Elluse (aka Helen Jones).
6th July 2017. I was involved and showcased some of my work at Pool Arts in Ardwick, part of the Manifest Arts Festival in Manchester.
7th May 2022. I’m managing a regular event and exhibiting my art regularly at Joshua Brooks in Manchester.
