Helen Shadforth is an accomplished Queensland artist and graphic designer who also uses her connection to reiki and intuition to inspire her work.
Helen Shadforth is an accomplished artist, designer and reiki master living on the beautiful Sunshine Coast in Queensland. For the past 20 years Helen has been a successful graphic designer working both in Australia and abroad and later went on to starting her own design house. Helen completed her Diploma of Graphic Design back in 1999 – when things were more hands on, ‘old school’ and less digital. Over the years though, she has embraced technology and sees it as just another medium in which to create with.
Helen has been a creative for as long as she can remember – always doodling, sketching, painting and creating. She considers herself lucky to have a career doing what she loves and to have an audience who enjoys and can connect with her work.
Helen’s current paintings are a result of the time spent using art as a form of therapy and self discovery. This recent work comes from a much more personal and emotional place than her previous projects. As a Reiki master, Helen uses her intuition and connection to energy as a deep and influential part of the creative process. Helen says that she is painting pieces that she truly loves and feels. Heavily influenced by people that surround her and whom she is close to. Helen gathers her inspiration from ancient and tribal art she has learnt from in her word travels, as well as nature, colour, patterns, symbolism and expressionism. She is particularly interested in the way art is used to communicate at and tell stories.
