Helen Hejl

My name is Helen, I'm 31 and living in San Diego. I received my Bachelor's in Art from the University of Hawai'i in 2015. Since then, I've exhibited my work in Salem, Honolulu and San Diego. I've worked at A&C Art Supply, taken commissions (murals, portraits, fabric painting) and taught private lessons to youth.

Today, I am excited to begin teaching adults and discovering what great ideas we can come up with together! In my class, I will show you some tools to empower your creative arsenal.

I enjoy documenting my life in watercolor. I have a few completed watercolor journals. This particular page depicts a time we went on a hike in Crest - a rural mountain community about 20 miles east of San Diego. We were staying in a nearby Airbnb while our house was being renovated. We had no idea these trails existed, and now this illustrated memory will be cherished.

Title or Location: ?Desert Paintbrush?, acrylic on canvas, 11? x 14?
These lovely red flowers are called desert paintbrush. I first learned about them when I was just a boy growing up in New Orleans. I loved all earth sciences, but especially rocks, gems, and flowers. I had a little book that showed different flowers from around the United States and these desert paintbrush were always my favorite. We didn?t have anything like that growing in New Orleans (and it was a terrible place to try to be a rockhound since it?s all delta), but I held out hope that when I g

An experiment using soft pastels on stretched canvas. The texture of the canvas lent itself to the pastels quite well. The image is based on a photo taken by a friend visiting Venice, Italy. By using more vibrant colors than the original, I believe it became more magical.

After taking up mandala painting in my late 60's during lockdown I decided to experiment using fabric scraps withing the design. This is the result of my first try. I am going to expand on this idea in the near future once I obtain more fabric scraps.

Title or Location: New beginnings
I'm new to oils and painting, I would say my style would be fine art and surrealism, no rules and I can escape, experiment and have fun. I painted this scene as I'd came across a beautiful photo of calla Lilly valley in California, I use the idea but made it my ownwith the colours and changed parts of it, I like the perspective and the enchanting mysterious vibe it gave. Returned to art almost a year ago, still finding my way, but determined, excited and fully motivated to reach my potential,

Title or Location: The Boats at Sunset in Bradenton
I was at The Starfish Restaurant when I captured this view on a cold day in Bradenton Florida from the dock behind the restaurant. I was fascinated by the light coming from one of the boats and the gas pump. The photograph helped me to produce this oil painting when I got home in Ohio.
