Helvi Smith

It began innocently enough. The Crayola box with 8 colors soon advanced to the 16 pack then the 24 and then the box with 64 colors with the built in sharpener. There was no going back. It was when Helvi Smith started painting that she realized that she had found her reason to be on this planet. Everything fit into place.

Helvi. The paint. The canvas. Everything just fit. Helvi considers... herself so danged fortunate to have found her passion in life because many do not. She is totally self-taught and the challenges and mysteries of painting are constantly keeping her on her toes.
