Some of the creative artisans we meet on our journey to create NOORVERK are hard to categorize simply because they make so many wonderful different products across a wide range of materials. Helena Engelbrecht with ’Helenas Kreative Verden’ (Helenas Creative World) is one of these multi-artisans who primarily make wonderful handmade drawings, but also let her creativity unfold with small interior design items, accessories and jewelry, ceramics, glas creations and embroideries just to mention a few.
Ever since she was a child her creative universe has filled her life with everything from sewing, jewelry creation, glass decorations, clay experiments, mosaic tables, drawings and decoupage. For the last couple of years she has dedicated her focus mostly on the drawings though.
The drawings are mostly black and white as she seeks simplicity and want the doodles to tell a story for themselves. She finds her inspiration in the nature, on the street and from her childhood. So it has not come as a surprise for her, that she gets most attention on her children illustrations for children’s rooms.
