Helen Child – Visual Art Bio

Helen Child is a multi-talented artist, born in Perth Western Australia who graduated from the Darling Downs Institute of Advanced Education, in Toowoomba QLD, in 1989, majoring in fine art and minoring in theatre.
She worked and exhibited successfully for several years as a sculptor in Brisbane and Perth, selling work to private collections, before a crippling illness caused creative change to writing and performing.

Helen designs her own props, costumes, make-up and illustrates her own poetry and comedy zines.
Now with improving health , Helen has returned to sculpting and exhibiting her art, combining it with her performance career and achieving international exposure in the international gallery website PRZM, for their Dream Big competition. In fact, half a dozen of her artworks have been featured on the PRZM website, two of which have been featured in the public gallery.
