Helen Bailey is an Australian artist. She trained in traditional drawing and painting both here and overseas before developing her unique contemporary abstract style.

Helen's fascination is with the essence of the ordinary. Her work presents familiar subjects in a new light and provides glimpses of the powerful forces that sustain them. Recurring subjects include the Australian bush, dry and burnt but with a dormant lushness waiting to emerge, and the human form, which provides endless interest in its capacity to evoke mood and emotion.

Helen's work has appeared at the following exhibitions:
