Helena Nelson-Reed is a visionary artist whose primary medium is watercolour. Born in Seattle, Washington, USA, she was raised in Marin County and Napa Valley, California, and today lives in Illinois. Helena’s primary focus is exploring the collective consciousness and the portrayal of archetypal imagery in the tradition of Carl Jung and Joseph Campbell. Helena’s luminous technique pushes the medium of watercolour past the usual limits to create extraordinary detail.
Helena works in other mediums including jewellery and seed bead embroidery on buckskin. She says her creative drive is strong, and not market-driven, but inspired by whatever moves her at the time. Explore Helena’s work in Sacred Earth Oracle and Sacred Earth Journal.
