I am a painter.
Helena Wurzel is an award winning painter, educator, wife, and mother living and working in Cambridge, MA.
In 2007 Helena received her MFA from Boston University. In 2010 Helena became on of the founding artists on the online archival printing website 20x200. Through 20x200, a design director at Kate Spade saw her painting “My Butt” and asked Helena to paint an ad campaign for the promotion of their Saturday line. Helena worked with the company from their launch in 2012 until they closed in 2015. Jonathan Adler saw her work in a Saturday store, selling her paintings in their retail stores in Los Angeles, Miami, and online from 2015-2018. She has won Massachusetts Cultural Council Grants in 2010 and 2016, and currently works non-exclusively with independent art dealers BK Projects and Carrie Coleman Fine Art.
