Helena Reis was born and currently lives in Lisbon, Portugal with her husband, two kids and 3 cats.
She started to draw and paint at a very young age, creating her own fantasy world.
It was only in 2005 that she began to take art seriously, making her own techniques as she is entirely self-taught. Helena has found her own unique style, a mix of creepy, dark and cute, representing personal fears and nightmares. It has become a way of overcoming self doubts, by portraying her darker side in a lighter perspective. To create her artwork Helena uses traditional mixed media on wood, including watercolor pencils, watercolors, acrylics, gouache and archival ink.
