Helen de Jonge

Helen de Jonge was raised in Ontario before moving to Calgary, which has been her home now for many years.

Art has always been a part of her life. As a child she loved to draw and colour so when her cousin bought her a set of oil paints she made up her mind to become an artist. Mostly self-taught, she paints in oil, acrylic or pastel and explores a variety of subjects including landscapes, flowers and people.

Helen is a member of the Calgary sketch club and and her art has been displayed at the Galleria as well as several other venues in Alberta and British Columbia.
