Artist Bio/Statement:

Helena Reis was born and currently lives in Lisbon, Portugal with her husband and 3 kids.
She started to draw and paint at a very young age, creating her own fantasy world.
It was only in 2005 that she began to take art seriously, making her own techniques as she is entirely self-taught.

After a lot of trial and error, Helena has found her own unique style, a mix of creepy, dark and cute, representing personal fears and nightmares.
It has become a way of overcoming self doubts, by portraying her darker side in a lighter perspective.

To create her artwork Helena uses traditional mixed media on wood, including watercolor pencils, watercolors, acrylics, gouache and archival ink.

Helena is also the founder/owner of Penumbra Art Boutique & Studio, exhibiting new and established artists, with a focus on pop surrealism and contemporary styles in every medium.
