About Helen Hosking
I am a graduate of Cooper Union in NYC where I received a BFA in sculpture. Graduate studies in jewelry and ceramics were done at the State University of New York in New Paltz NY.
I have been a studio artist my entire adult life and have earned my living from the sale of my jewelry and art work. Studio life has been a wonderful balancing act between working on my enamel Jewelry and my fine artwork, which includes my figurative sculpture (clay and bronze), as well as my wall collages (handmade paper, and cast paper), which are a mixture of flat and three dimensional work. All of my work is involved in an exploration of timing, form, and space.
