A Fine Arts graduate from the University of Pretoria, Helena Hugo uses oil and pastel to create fascinating portraits depicting workers in their own environment. “Hugo's realistic accuracy transcends conventional notions of realism not so much because of her technical ability, but because her paintings and drawings of people somehow capture the essence of each particular subject and the very essence of what it is to be human.” - Peter Machen​


Helena's work has received numerous arwards and is included in many private and corporate collections.
