Intro
Helen Clara Hemsley is an artist based in Copenhagen, Denmark, borned in Durban, South Africa. With a BA on Fine Art Sculpture - Glasgow School of Art, and studies in jewellery, has a solid career on the field. Helen is inspired by the every day and the familiar and her work is about passion, love and curiosity.

Statement

I am inspired by the every day and the familiar. My jewellery celebrates my life and observations, my love of words and sayings, and my incurable need to process and understand the world around me. My work is often funny, a bit silly and light, but with a twist of critical observation. I tell stories that are essentially mine, but with a hope that they can also touch others, bring a smile to their faces and get them thinking. My work is about passion, love and curiosity and it mirrors my desire for answers to endless questions.
