Austin based artist Helena Martin has been painting with aerosol for six years and brushes since childhood.  Animals (especially dogs, owls and foxes) are frequently featured in her work as a nod to nature and our place in it. Trained in medical illustration, her paintings often contain the anatomy of animals and people.  Small figures, or spirits, often inhabit the paintings she creates. Enchanting and weird, Martin's work captivates viewers on an emotional level.
