Helaina Sharpley

Helaina Sharpley, studio

Helaina loves the old way of life and believes in doing things the right way. She is inspired by tradition, old fashion values and having afternoon tea in beautiful surroundings, preferably from the Edwardian period…


Illustrations turned into wire works after a college lecturer placed some wire into her hands because he wanted Helaina to make something in 3D and she kept drawing. The rest is… ‘wirework history’.


Helaina is three times winner of ‘The Wow Factor’ at The British Craft Trade Fair.

Hockney owns two pieces of work from Helaina’s collection.
