The title was the short conversation Helen Elliott had with artist Stan Rosenthal in 1990. Although she was obsessed by painting from an early age, she’d been asked to leave the art class at school and told she couldn’t draw. This lack of art education let Helen explore her imagination in depth and experiment to develop a way of painting that is unique and memorable.
