And Our Heroes Have Misplaced Their Map

Helen's newest Peace Paintings produced in 2021 juxtapose older reference photos taken in Oslo, Norway, with local landscapes, with refugees from Syria and Afghanistan remapped over these imagined places. 


Helen is currently working with Peace Painting in Norway, seeking funding to run further workshops in schools and other venues in the UK to educate and inspire students to work for peace.

If you or your organisation have funding available for these, please contact me to discuss your requirements.


FUND PEACE!


Helen and Catrine are seeking sponsors for Peace Painting in the UK.

Contact Helen for more information, and if you wish to support the project.
