Helene picked up her first camera at age eleven and fell in love with photography.  Her formal education began at Temple University in Philadelphia.   She has been and continues to be an avid and lifelong student of the visual arts and music and has studied  in major cities of the United States and Europe. 

Throughout her journey through life and different parts of the world, her camera was always by her side.

After earning a Master of Arts degree from the University of Missouri,  Helene devoted much of her time to being an educator in the public school system, where photography played an important role.

Not only has her photographic work received a variety of accolades and been short-listed in international competitions, but her compassionate and effective teaching syle won her the titles of Teacher and Staff of the Year and a variety of grants, fellowships and scholarships. While her primary focus continues to be photography, Helene offers topic specific seminars whenever her shooting schedule allows.

“I love being behind the camera, but I also want to share my knowledge with others so that they can experience the same joy that I do when I make a magical photo from the heart.  It’s a way for me to give back to society, and to my community.”
