Helen works with a bunch of clever clients and collaborators to make places more funner, more intriguing, more authentic and more better. She does this through her company Apparatus. It is work she really enjoys – exploring the arts, cultural heritage, public art, urban and landscape design, history and future dreaming.

Helen has established herself as one of Perth’s leading art consultants. She founded Apparatus in 2014 and directs the core areas of art, place and culture. 
Helen has extensive experience in the disciplines of arts management, place-making, public art, cultural services, interpretation, policy and strategy in both private and public practice.

She has worked with a wide range of clients including Metropolitan Redevelopment Authority (MRA), State Government of WA, City of Swan, City of Stirling, Defence Housing Australia, Far East Consortium, City of Melville and the City of Bunbury.

Helen sits on the board of the pvi collective and is an ardent advocate for the arts.
