A native of Ontario and a former licensed practical nurse, Hélène retired to Canmore, Alta., with her husband, Bill. The beautiful artistic community provided the opportunity to study watercolour painting with veteran artist and teacher Donna Jo Massie.

As a member of the Canmore Artists and Artisans Guild, Hélène had the privilege of exhibiting her art and photographic works several times a year in group settings and, from Sept. 10 to 21, 2010, at a joint exhibition titled "Oil And Water Do Mix” with oil painter Kathleen Wheeler.

Since moving to Kelowna in July 2011, Hélène has joined the Water Street Pleasure Painters, the Lake Country Art Gallery and the Kelowna Art Gallery. She has also enjoyed acrylic painting classes with Marlene G. McPherson at the Lake Country Art Gallery.
