One of the things i love about this industry, this hobby, this art is how it brings people across the globe together. How we can find inspiration across the world and bridge our cultural gaps, make new friends, and learn from each other. Even though we live in so many different places and speak so many different languages, we are united by art.
I love to blog hopping and finding this inspiration, seeing other peoples approach to scrapbooking & mixed media art. I want to share (with their permission of course) people i find along the way.
United by Art # 10: Helen Virpi
I met Helena in person while teaching in Greece at the Kouros Hotel. We got to spend some time before and after the week long event. We had a fun filled day in Elina's Jeep exploring Mykonos that i will never forget. It was an incredible day filled with lots of laughter. Before that I knew Helena from the Cocoa Daisy Message board. She is originally from Finland but has lived in Italy for many, many years. If you ever have the opportunity, ask her how she met her husband. it's a great tale that i just love. I have loved watching Helena's skills grow and find her style. It's filled with beautiful layers upon layers. Here are some of my favorite pieces.
Thank you Helena for letting me share your colorful art.
