Helena Richardson is a graphic designer, painter, and illustrator. Although living in Springfield, Oregon, she greatly misses her hometown of New York City. She received a B.S. in Art in June 2017 from the University of Oregon after receiving an A.A.S. in Graphic Design from Lane Community College in 2015. With a passion for color and character, she communicates a mixture of design and illustration in her own personal way. She paints abstract and figurative works and finds inspiration from personal experiences, social justice, and the human figure. When not creating, she admires other artists’ works, listens to music, reads science fiction novels and watches B-movie films.
