Welcome to professional Australian artist

Helen Komene

'Local Love Affair' Burns Beach, Perth Western Australia | pastels on primed paper | 128 x 92 cms framed | sold, private commission  


Helen Komene is a professional Australian artist best known for her diverse artistic talents. Specialising in seascapes, landscapes and pawtraits and portraits, her work is readily identifiable because of her fresh, contemporary and clever style.  

It has often been described as photographic yet when viewed up close, each artwork reveals her raw strokes and the texture of her art medium.  It’s this visual illusion and the meticulous way she uses soft pastels that attracts attention from Helen’s customers and students.


2018 Hedland Art Awards Finalist



Red Reverie | Hamersley Gorge | 79 x 79 cms | Pastels on primed paper
I'm one a 111 finalists selected in this year's Hedland Art Awards.  
If ever there was a place to be pleasantly lost in one's thoughts, Hamersley Gorge is the perfect daydreaming spot.
In Karijini's north-west, further afield than the other gorges, it is well worth the visit.  It is a dramatic gorge with a sharp, steep decent into colour and texture.  Swirls of rock look like they have been bent and folded like linen and at the bottom, visitors are met with waterfalls that trickle into tranquil pools that create mirror-like reflections of the unique rock strata.
