John Gardner and I first started working together in 2016 when I helped him on a large bronze tree he was commissioned to make. We wanted to do another collaboration on another tree, but this time on a much smaller scale. This new work became Fox and Tree. The tree symbolises grounding and stability, the fox is its little friend providing wisdom, guidance and protection.

Sculptor Bio

Helena Lillywhite

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.
