Artist Helen Ström draws “portraits” of things that capture her interest, often including elements of light, shadow, and water. Her body of work tells the story of a lifetime’s experiences, each piece serving as a part of the whole. Interested in art from an early age, Ström now views art as an essential part of life. Born in Sweden, Ström grew up in Spain and has lived in Paris for many years. There, she has found a growing community of artists and art lovers with whom she can share her work and teaching experiences.
