Helen Mueller came to printmaking in the mid 1990's via an earlier career in the social sciences. Since then, she has exhibited consistently in Australia, Europe and Asia. Since 2004, MAY SPACE has hosted eight of her solo shows. Helen has a BA from the University of NEW, a BVA (Hons) from Sydney College of the Arts, and a MFA from NSW Art and Design. She has taught at a number of tertiary art schools and has more recently co-headed the Printmaking Department at the National Art School in Sydney. She is an active member of Sydney Printmakers.
Water, the survival (or not) of flora in the littoral zone, morphology, questions of ecology, connections and disconnections in the material world, these are all grist for Helen's creative mill. She works mainly with relief processes to make images and objects.
