HeleneSafajou

Helene Safajou was born in Ethiopia and raised both in East Africa and France, Helene followed her husband to Australia in 1995 after many years living as a nomad.

After a life in the corporate and teaching world, and seeking relief from postnatal depression, her life as an artist started in 1998.

She does not have any formal training in art. Everything she has learnt has been through self guided learning, weekend workshops and informal online courses, with a large dose of trial and error! In 2009, she studied Graphic Design at Kingscliff TAFE.

She loves using oils, acrylics, inks, collage and hand stitching in her work, which gives her the opportunity to express her family and spiritual heritage.

For her, art is a spiritual practice to connect with the past and the present and most of all a tool for meditation and healing.

Helene is participating in Illumine, Byron…

Emails for all artists are provided in the catalogue.

June plans to produce her books and have them for sale at some point and you can request to be on her mailing list to be informed of…
