Helen Timbury

I'm a graphic designer, illustrator, and printmaker. I received my Bachelor of Arts in Visual Communication from RMIT in 1988 (back when graphics was done on paper).

I create graphic designs for print, web, and signage. I make linocut prints and other illustrative works on paper. I love making visual things that communicate; I produce brochures, cards, book illustrations, CD covers, logos, signs, and limited-edition art prints.

About my work

I love making prints on paper in my small Drouin studio. My work celebrates the natural environment and my love of the Australian wilderness.

As urban development builds up around my hometown of Drouin, I hope my images of our fragile environment raise awareness in others.

Is there a link between gardening and your creative practice?

My art prints depict local plants, animals, birds, and insects. My work celebrates Gippsland's remarkable biodiversity.

What will you show and share on the day?

Visitors will see how I hand carve my printing blocks and print them (if temperatures aren't too high). I'll also display my original art prints, cards, and calendars.

What's in your veggie patch?

Mainly herbs, lettuce, tomatoes, and silver beet.

Where will we find you?

I'll be in The Butler Garden
