Meet the Artist
Helen Fraser is passionate about drawing and textiles. She specialises in creating original works on paper and embroidered and quilted textiles that connect the past with the present. As she is also a Psychologist and Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist in private practice in Prahran, Melbourne her works draw on textiles as a metaphor for the human condition. They often include motifs like tassels, frayed edges, threads, lace knitting and weaving.
Alongside her art practice she conducts research into Australia's hidden history which she is documenting via Instagram @helenfraserartist and her website Blog.
She lives and works in the Macedon Ranges in central Victoria, Australia. Her artwork is held in private and public collections in Australia, USA, Canada and Italy. She regularly exhibits her work in galleries, engages in projects and collaborations and takes regular commissions.
