59 Helen Wade, Unspoken Glances, acrylic 30″x24″

Helen Wade is a visual artist, whose work is an expression of her feelings and experiences. Helen currently lives in Myrtle Beach SC. She was born in Arlington MA and has lived in many places within the US and in Latin America, including Puerto Rico, Costa Rica and Mexico. Helen has been painting since 2019 and her medium is acrylics. She is self-taught and describes her art as intuitive, naïve and akin to the outsider art genre.

Helen had a difficult childhood and later struggled with alcohol and drug abuse. Following a life changing event in 1984, her world changed. Helen was fortunate to become a member of a group who provided her a path to self12/discovery and spiritual awakenings. Her art process is intuitive, reflecting her inner thoughts and feelings.

Helen’s work has been shown at the William H. Miller Studios and Fine Arts and at the Seacoast Artists Gallery, both in Myrtle Beach SC. She is a member of the Seacoast Artist Guild and the Waccamaw Arts & Crafts Guild.
