Biography


Born in Beirut, Lebanon, to an American father and a German mother, Helen Avalon grew up in several countries, including Saudi Arabia, Yugoslavia, West Germany, Trinidad, and the USA.   Both as a child and young adult, she enjoyed painting in acrylic and watercolor.  An acrylic painting that she created in sixth grade still hangs in her sister’s living room.  Later she expanded her artistic exploration to include fabrics, beading, clay, porcelain, woodworking, and interior design.  After working with oil paints for the first time in 2008, everything changed for her and she fully committed herself to a life of oil painting.
 
Since then she has been fortunate to study with some of the finest American painters today, including Daniel Gerhartz, Henry Yan, Camille Przewodek, Kim English, Don Sondag, Stacy Barter, Larry Moore, Dawn Whitelaw, Marie Orban, Tom Sadler, Debra Huse, Berto Ortega, Calvin Liang, Gregg Kreutz, and Ellen Schnell in addition to attending classes and open studios at Crealde School of Art.  In 2012, she completed a year-long mentorship program with Kevin Macpherson.
 
Today Helen makes her home in Orlando, Florida, with her husband and two cats.  She delights in painting at her home studio and sketching and photographing while traveling through foreign countries, striving to capture the beauty and joy of the light that shines on the people and things of our world.
