After completing her Fine Art Bachelors Degree, she became very interested in computer design software and furthered her education in the Adobe Creative Suite. With this and lots of enthusiasm, she could get employment at an internet software business as an HTML Developer.
This led to a career that lasted (twenty years and counting) encompassing varied roles, across the fields of Graphic Design and Website Development.
During that time, she began to recognize how unique her collection of skills was as most of my colleagues were solely focusing on creating designs and websites. She also harboured an interest in how her work generates leads.
And in her last full-time graphic design position, in the global financial business Capify, she started to contemplate starting her own business and made steps to start Elluse
helen, the founder?
This logo name is an acronym for the word Elusive. When expressing her ideas in her art, Helen prefers to approach it with some style and likes to be subtle. She doesn’t shout her beliefs from the treetops but prefers to be a bit more reserved and subversive, maybe because she is a quiet soul that likes to be more in the background rather than the centre of attention.
Since Helen was a child, she’s been creating art, as her mother was an art teacher and taught her from a young age to explore lots of mediums and experiment creatively. As she grew up, she found mixing up her art with learning new skills was enjoyable. She would find learning new technologies and software interesting but has also explored Sculpture, Lino Print and Photography. Helen loves the combination of learning something new and creating art and would, at times, get involved in reading Philosophy and Political Discussions but always entwined what she learnt into her art.
She’s found as an artist a pressure from society to choose a medium and develop her own unique style and stick to this – for the rest of her life! Doing this was not something she wanted to do, and she would find the whole concept boring.
Because of this, Helen’s art doesn’t look all the same as so many artists out there stick to. She feels that society pushes artists to think this way and conform, basically so business people can use them as a tool to market them and make money for themselves.
Art to me is not about business or making money but a way to live your life that doesn’t embrace the western society concept of buying products and throwing them away. If more people became artists, it would definitely be better for the planet and peoples mental health.
