Helen Platania
Mixed Media Artist
I am an exhibiting & commissioned mixed media artist based in Greensborough where I work from my home studio. Inspired by the female face, I am a lover of exploring the corners of the mind and the things you find there.
I have held an ‘Artist in Residence’ position at the Maharishi School in 2012, Greenhills Primary School in 2019 and I currently run studio based weekly creative classes for both women & children.

I am a passionate advocate for sharing knowledge within the local community. I have regularly worked with local council on Arts events such as ‘Banyule Kids Arty Farty Fest' and have successfully obtained community grants to facilitate workshops such as ‘Creative Time Out’ – an eight-week art program for mothers of Autistic children as well as an exhibiting grant for 'Thou Art Mum' a not for profit female visual artist network - experiencing first hand the ability art has to bring people together with the encouragement of community support.

I have been an active member of TAM (A Diamond Valley group of female visual artists) since 2012 and have held the Sub Committee Leadership positions within the group for 2014/15/17.
