Helena Geiger was born in Sydney. Her mother is Aboriginal & and her father is Austrian. Her Aboriginal heritage is traced back to the Gumbayngirr language group from the North Coast of New South Wales where most of her family still lives. Helena has a combined passion for Indigenous Art and Fabric. She expresses herself through the traditional and beautiful art of Batik. With an acute sensitivity to nature and the beauty of colours, shapes and patterns found in Australia, Helena says: “I believe we must respect the land and step lightly on it to protect all the creatures we share it with.” Her work is marked by colours and shapes that range from bold to incredibly subtle in design. To see her work is to experience her emotional responses to Earth in very delicate detail.
