Hi! I'm Helga the ARTchick! I love to create, paint, collage and make special gifts for my loved ones. The act of creating brightens me up and makes me a super happy chick!

In my past, I co-published a magazine called ARTitude Zine which was all about celebrating creativity and mixed media explorations. Currently, I own ARTchix Studio (and have done so since 2001) and sell digital downloads (from my huge library of vintage books, magazines, postcards and more) and art goodies on etsy.com.

I love inspiring others to get creative. And I believe art is so healing! If you'd like to come to my beautiful studio for private art classes, please contact me. We can discuss what you're looking for and I can design a special class just for you.

I also love to collaborate. If you have a project or idea in mind, I'm all ears! I am available for commissions and live painting events.
