by Helen He
Helen has never painted before. Which blows. My. Mind. She has only worked with pens, pencil, and digital art before. Her style is also usually has more realism. Her subject matter is similar to her past work though: she’s drawn a lot of people and faces.
She wants people walking past to feel relaxed, and not feel bad about pausing to chill every once in a while. Helen found stress-relief in art, and kept it as a self-taught side hobby. She knew the minute she formalized things – took lessons, or entered competitions, etc. – art would lose its de-stressing abilities. She hopes others can find their own ways to destress.
The bright yellow on the soft blues were actually picked based on what paints were already poured out and available. This is super neat because it’s as if other murals were integrated in the tiniest way into this one!
