An “over the moon” Radlett woman has been awarded the International Prize Botticelli for her artwork and achievements.
Helen Lack was awarded the International Prize Botticelli, one of the most prestigious art awards awarded in the heart of Florence, inside the Borghese Palace.
Only particular artists are awarded the significant achievement and it attracts many celebrities in arts and culture in Florence.
Helen said: “This is a real milestone in my career, I am an established artist and it was only 18 months ago when I was just emerging.
“My goal is to work at an international level and status. I have all types of projects for 2019 so watch this space.”
Helen has been working as a contemporary abstract artist and is influenced by expression and vibrant colours; she specialises in astronomy, cosmic rays and energy.
She said: “My artworks are statement pieces; they are mainly abstract and semi-landscape, inspired by the environment and places of travel.
“I have a strong ethos for saving our trees and oceans and through my art I have expressed these concerns. I have big goals and I am hugely passionate; I live and breathe my art.”
Helen was also selected as a wild card artist for Sky Arts Landscape Artist of the Year 2018, as well as having a corresponding exhibition that features four bits of her artwork.
Helen said: “My hard work shows, if you are determined to get there, you will get there. I am evolving all the time.”
