My name is Helen Ward and I am a designer, illustrator and artist from Bristol, UK.
Having been employed as a stationery and giftware designer for 6 years, I finally took the plunge and decided to go it alone as a freelancer in 2008. Thank heavens, I have never looked back since that day and I am now very happy pootling around doing all sorts of lovely design jobs whilst working for myself – YAY!
October 2009 brought the arrival of my beautiful daughter, Jet and since then I have been trying to juggle being a busy mum with my numerous creative exploits.
My work as an artist has lead me to exhibit work all over the world and I have been involved in shows in London, New York, Paris and Amsterdam in the last year (whoop!). It all sounds massively glamourous, but to be fair, I do just stay at home changing nappies and doing knitting – things could be worse!
I hope you enjoy looking through my blog. If you like what you see, you might want to check out my shop over here on notonthehighstreet.com.
There are some examples of my professional work up in my portfolio section and a downloadable version of my CV can be found here.

Thanks for looking me up – hurray for you!
