Helena Lillywhite

Informed by life and nature, my work incorporates the use of light and shadows, positives and negatives and contrasts as a way of expressing a sense of depth and form. I like to show a sense of emotion within my work and find horses and figures are the best way to portray these and often use these as my subject matter.

I often use cast bronze and sheet metal in my artworks, constructed into layers. Previously I worked as a graphic designer, and I often use these techniques as a starting point within my work.

I was born in the UK and graduated from University of Chichester, UK, receiving a BA Honours Degree in Art and Related Arts in which sculpture was my main subject.

I moved to Australia in 1996 and worked as a graphic designer for over 20 years before starting a family of 4 wonderful boys.

In 2016 I worked with artist John Gardner on a commission he was completing. We then collaborated on various other artworks including a sculpture of Juanita Neilsen which was purchased by the City of Sydney in 2018. Since then, I have continued along this creative journey, doing what I love, creating sculptures.

2018- City of Sydney, public collection. Juanita Nielsen Community Centre Woolloomooloo NSW. Collaboration with Sculptor John Gardner.
