Helen’s practice is largely site-responsive, with an emphasis on impermanence - issues of place, change, belonging - mostly working in remote outdoor locations. The particular locality – people and place – provide materials feeding into her work, often combining local found-geology, earth, water, chalk, charcoal, with material culture. The process usually concludes in a final piece, documented, and left to be washed, cut or swept away.
