'Duck's Lucky Day' and 'Duck Get's Stuck' are both self published and available to buy online. Bubble & Raff's Little Adventure' was a limited addition that is no longer in print. Scroll down to view my illustration portfolio below.
"Wonderful book! Beautifully written and illustrated. My daughter absolutely adores this book. Would definitely recommend!"
Duck's Lucky Day
"Helena is a very talented artist and writer, I cannot recommend this book enough. Another great find from an indie author. My children have a soft spot for ducks and we just had to have this book in our collection. The sketch style illustration with digital colour brings alive the story."

Teacher: "It was amazing to meet an author and illustrator and get an insight in to what happens behind the scenes when you are writing a book."
Reception child: "Helena drew lots of animals and they went on an adventure. I made my own adventure for duck when I went back to class."
Year 1 child: "I want to be an artist when I grow up and I really liked seeing how Helena kept trying and trying to draw the different animals until they were perfect. She really persevered!"
Year 2 child: "I learnt a lot about how to think of a story and create the illustrations. I met Helena at the Carshalton Carnival and got my own signed copy of Duck's Lucky Day which was really exciting. I want to write a story just like Helena".
