Helen NessHelen is a painter and printmaker originally from Dundas, Ontario and an original member of the Carnegie Gallery.

A graduate of the Ontario College of Art in Toronto, she pursued a career as a commercial artist. In subsequent years she took further courses at the Dundas Valley School of Art where she discovered the challenging appeal of the etching process.

Etching became her passion but she enjoyed working on other media as well, and miniatures became her specialty. Over the years Helen was active in many arts organizations and she has shared her knowledge and love for her chosen medium through art classes and workshops.

Now able to spend part of each year in Mexico, she is now enjoying painting the scenery as well as the local people there.
