About

Helen Morgan is an emerging artist from Sydney, Australia, working in the fields of printmaking, photography and installation. Her work explores our relationship with the overlooked objects that populate our lives, informed by Helen’s upbringing in her century-old maternal family home in south-western Sydney, and her Egyptian-Australian heritage.

 

In 2018, Helen received her Bachelor of Fine Arts for which she was awarded both The Jenour Foundation Fine Arts MFA Scholarship and The Mark Henry Cain Memorial Travel Scholarship. In 2019, these awards saw her undertake independent study of modern and contemporary abstract art in Europe and begin a Master of Fine Arts in printmaking at the National Art School, Sydney.
