Helen Eltis’s captivation in the floral world stems from her early childhood when she was raised on “The Island of Flowers”, Madeira until the age of 5 when England became her home. Helen went on to attend St Martin’s College of Art, London, where she graduated with a 1st class degree. Soon after her graduation her paintings were already in the Royal Collection with her debut show on the King’s Road at the Designer’s Guild and her First patron the Duke of Norfolk.

Helen Eltis has exhibited her work internationally and her Interior Decoration (Trompe L’oeil Murals) have been featured in House & Gardens, BBC and other publications. She is one of only 90 Artists honoured by Christie’s and given the title of “Christie’s Contemporary Artist”.

She has exhibited her work internationally and one her most acclaimed exhibitions has been at Christie’s in London when her work was hung next to Masters including Pablo Picasso.


Helen lives between the Virgin Islands, Colorado, England and Costa Rica and she paints in all of these locations. Her works capture the natural beauty in each place as she is inspired by natural scenery and especially flowers. She believes that the "Flower" represents the pinnacle of evolution and she believes that it is a wonderful time to be alive, when the world is so abundant with flowers. Helen Eltis is a strong believer in preserving nature and all the beauty that Mother Earth provides.
