About

Artwiz specialises in interior design, painting for interior and stage, props making, fine arts and graphic arts for a wide variety of clients, including television, interior designers, retailers, event managers and theatres. Its owner, Helena, works either as a freelancer or as sole contractor. Thanks to strategic partnership with recognised professionals she has her own pool of talents.

Helena is originally from France and West Africa, where she grew up until she was 17. After her A level in mathematics and physics she moved to Europe to pursue qualifications in business studies, but after working for some years returned to her artistic vocation..

She completed a BA (hons) degree in scenic arts at Rose Bruford College (University of Manchester) in July 2000. Kanoute has since undertaken a series of freelance commissions within the entertainment and interior industries.

For living Helena is a very experienced, highly skilled and talented graphic designer who, when required, works through all points of the design and production life cycle: from conception through development and project management to production and finishing, comfortably liaising with clients, external print houses and other stakeholders.

"My ambition in this life, is not to be remembered
by posterity but to use my talent to transform
people's lives… Small sparks of joy can have major ripples
further down the path"
