Helen Frost was born a farmer's daughter at Ngutunui in the Waikato in the 1950's, when to become an artist was not generally an 'accepted' occupation. Growing up Helen was bathed in nature from day one, gathering a huge repertoire of textures and colours, and then broadened these with experiences and observations of 'life', including extensive over-seas travel, which has today given her a perfect 'cocktail' to 'make art'.
Starting her journey as an artist in 1992, Helen is presently creating ceramic pieces from her studio in Waihi.
