Helen Platania Art
Art Angels & Crafty Cats
I am a mixed media artist based in Melbourne where I work from my home studio. Inspired by the female face, I am a lover of exploring the corners of the mind and the things you find there.
Previously I have held an ‘Artist in Residence’ position at the Maharishi School in 2012. Currently I run weekly creative classes for both children and adults at ‘Art Angels & Crafty Cats’.
I am a passionate advocate for sharing my knowledge in the local community. I regularly work with the local council on Arts events such as ‘Banyule Kids Arty Farty Fest ‘and have facilitated grant driven initiatives such as ‘Creative Time Out’ – an eight-week program for mothers of Autistic children - experiencing first-hand the ability art has to bring people together and encourage acceptance.
