Helen M PictureFine Art
I’m so glad that you decided to visit my website. I’d like to know something about you, but first let me introduce myself. I’m an ordinary artist from Ukraine, but I like to use my art in different and unusual ways. Don’t worry I will explain.
First of all I paint what I like and try to enjoy every challenge in a new painting. My favorite subjects to paint are people and architecture. Also my art is a tool for charity projects.
Since 2009 I have been working as a volunteer with orphans. I often do workshops with them and different courses including culinary, computer class and of course drawing. But my goal is to gather other volunteers and make volunteers from normal people. That’s why I like to paint walls, especially in orphanage and hospitals. It can tell people about the kids’ problems and needs. Such projects attract a lot of people and make me very busy sometimes. Besides, painting walls is also a challenge and opportunity for development.
The third thing about my art – it’s my business. I take part in exhibitions and competitions. I try to develop my skills all the time and learn from other artists. My costumers are always my friends, who deserve the best quality and an honest price. This side of my art is very important, because business can help me make more charity. And now I want to hear your story. If you have advice on how I can promote paintings or how to help orphans, you can connect with me and make an impact.
