Where we have come from…
HTD started life back in 1994, when Helena graduated from university, armed with a degree in surface pattern design. She went to work for Liberty, and after that went on to work as a fashion designer and an interior designer, for a time. But it was after her children, Iris and Louis, were born that HTD became what it is today. Art inspired by life.
Helena’s work has evolved from her love of words, all things vintage and a few blasts from the past! Inspired by family, music, having fun and a bit of silliness, Helena is a pen and paper kinda gal and this is how every idea starts. Splicing the old with the new to reinvent classics, creating a distinctive style all of her own. Her mix of hand drawn illustrations, painting, iconic British imagery, words, letterpress and prints creates a warmth and richness that finds a place in people’s hearts. Capturing nostalgia with a contemporary twist.
Getting out there…
Helena’s work has been licensed and sold by John Lewis, is available on Not On The High Street and also in a growing number of independent retailers throughout the UK. The product range is always expanding but currently includes prints, stationery, personalised gifts and homewares.
