Helene Malone was born in County Laoise in 1957 and during her time as a boarder in Loreto in Kilkenny she was inspired and encouraged to pursue her innate love of fine art.
While working in the commercial graphics sector she continued through various part-time courses in NCAD, Trinity College and RHA to study Landscape and Life Drawing. She exhibited over a five year period during Kilkenny Arts Week and has continued to sell privately both home and abroad since. She has also taught drawing and painting privately and in local National Schools.
In recent years as family commitments have eased she returned to study with increased focus and commitment attending master classes with Mick O’Dee, RHA and Gerry Hayes and Adam Thomas Markovic both of whom are graduate students of the Florence Old Masters school.
While she continues to paint both Landscapes and Still life using a varied and vibrant palette and her influence and inspiration is drawn from a wide variety of classical and modern art, she is increasingly drawn to the techniques of the Old Masters who painted from a more limited palette.
Helene’s life journey to develop and deepen her understanding of the visual language and her abiding love of that art is evident.
