Helen Powles has painted since childhood – even during obligatory diversions such as her University degree, her short career in journalism in London and the birth of her children. Artist, poet, she is a story-teller. She interprets her journey and her visions through her art. Her work lies at the crossroads of reality and the imaginary, mind and spirit. It is steeped in myth and symbols of our past. At the same time her work is intimately metaphysical. Her paintings are reflections, meditations, a graphic memory of her path. She calls them ‘Mythographies’.
