Helen Masacz is a figurative painter who lives and works in London. In 2004 she graduated with a BA Hons in Fine Art, then eight years later decided to study traditional painting and drawing on a part-time basis at a London Atelier school. Helen has exhibited at the National Portrait Gallery in 2004 and 2010 for the BP Awards and was then invited back to be a part of the Mystery Postcard Exhibitions. Her awards include The Arts Club award, which she won at the annual Royal Society Portrait painters exhibition in 2011. Helen's work is held in the Mansfield, Oxford University collection. Her commissions include The Right Honourable Lord Dyson, Principle Dr Diana Walford and Dr Paul McKenna. Using narrative and the continuous practice of traditional skills to express contemporary culture, Helen's work is constantly evolving.
