Helen Pfeil

As far back as I can remember I have loved drawing,

painting and making ‘things’. This desire to create led me to pursue my passion in the form of fashion design (brand name SUMMERWIND) which was in turn instrumental in the development of my own manufacturing business. During this time bringing up a family and being professionally occupied there was scant time in between for dabbling with paint and canvas.

The plan was always there to return to art so when the opportunity presented itself to sell up and move on I jumped at it. As I am basically a self-taught artist I enjoy the generous sharing of knowledge and expertise to be found in books written by well-known and experienced artists and find that there is always something new and exciting to learn. Down the years I have attended various painting and drawing workshops and currently exhibit in several galleries around the Western Cape. I am passionate about my art and enjoy every moment in front of my easel.
