About MeBorn in Liverpool on 1st October 1988. Self described as vivacious, hard working and resilient.
Helen's career came about aged 16. Scouted whilst shopping in a mall in Birmingham Helen's career in the fashion industry quickly blossomed. A small town girl, growing up in boarding schools across England, Helen is now based in the US with a wealth of experience behind her.
Helen has completed shoots for some of the Biggest named magazines across the globe including Red, Cosmopolitan US and Women's Health. "I have had some incredible opportunities afforded to me and I cannot wait to see what lies ahead."
Besides modelling, Helen has a passion for art. "There is something so very therapeutic about two simple things. A sketch pad and a pencil in hand; nothing else to concentrate on but your own creation. There is something so rewarding in turning a blank page into something meaningful, symbolic and emotional for either myself or those who appreciate my art."
If all this is not enough, when asked what Helen would do if she could, the answer.... become a chef. She has a talent in the kitchen and hopes to release a cookbook one day.
When she is not in front of a camera, behind an easel or in the heat of the kitchen, Helen loves reading, riding her horse Thomas - await photos on her personal blog and watching her husband play Football for the NY Jets (yes! Isn't her life a dream?!)
I would like to work with new/aspiring/well established photographers who would like to add to their portfolios as well as better mine. I want to have more control over the shoots i take part in and am keen to shoot in more editorial / different locations. Working for Select agency has allowed me to gain a wealth of experience and to have signed again in NYC. I would love to collaborate and come up with new and contemporary idea with makeup artists, hair stylists and wardrobe stylists.
