transforming light since 1986


“For me, it is all about how the glass transforms the light”

- Helen Phelan

Helen Phelan is the London based artist at Helen Phelan Design and Build established in 2004. She has had three one-woman shows over the 2016/17 periods and her latst exhibit was at the Mall Galleries RSMA show in central London in October 2018. 

Originally a printmaker, Helen now specialises in the use of glass in her artwork.  It was a small step from printmaking to cutting glass exploiting the rigidity in both processes.  Helen built her first free standing glass screen in 1986; her use of glass in jewellery was featured in 1990 on Wogan and Top of the Pops and she has been developing her artwork in this medium ever since. 

Helen builds free standing room dividing screens, shutters and window panels for private clients globally both in India and Australia and exhibits in public spaces.
