Helen juried into the Workhouse at Lorton Arts Foundation, Lorton, Virginia, where she has a studio. Helen explains that the building is a national historic site and was formerly a prison. It is more than one hundred years old. The suffragettes were imprisoned here at the turn of the 20th century, Norman Mailer in the 1960s. It was basically the prison for Washington, D.C. It is now the home to over 120 artists. She says, "The public is welcome to visit our studios and watch us work. You can see my work on our site www.workhousearts.org/helenanne.
She adds, "I recently did a series of paintings called "BP-Changing the Landscape". Along with that I am in a traveling show, "Response to the Gulf Oil Diaster" which originated in Chicago, Illinois, and is now in Huntsville, Alabama. In October, one of my landscapes was accepted in the juried members' show at International Arts & Artists in Washington, D.C."
