Helen H. Wu, was born and raised in Hefei, China. Helen took private lessons and studied drawing for more than ten years beginning at age six. She attended Renmin University of China, majoring in Public Management, after that she came to the United States to study Applied Economics. During her school days Helen traveled to many places in Asia, Europe and North America. These journeys exposed her to various cultures and arts, while providing inspiration for her artistic creativity. Helen's love of art is deep rooted. She taught herself graphic design and after graduation she opened her own art studio. Helen started to illustrate children's books in 2011. Currently she is a freelance artist living in Atlanta, Georgia, with her husband and a lab pup.
Helen's emphasis is on illustrations. She has curated a collection of nursery rhymes form writers around the globe - Donna Cederstrand, Shyla Fairfax, R.A. Goodyear, Shannon Elaine Logsdon, Angeline Wu Oppenheimer and Iris Williams - and made them magical with her superb illustrations. The rhyming poems have to do with animals and nature and children and dreams and fantasies. This is a terrific collection for children as well as of adults who enjoy very fine art!
