But she is more than that… she is a woman obsessed with creativity.

DVD CoverFrom a young age, she read every possible book and treatise written on the subject.  She was desparate to own that Creative part of herself that had never been fostered.

Today Helene Anne walks, talks and breathes Creativity. 

She wants others to access the same peace, joy and satisfaction that Creativity brings to life within her. Hence her one-on-one Creativity Coaching Programme.

A Bit of My Story: It is now 25 years since I have been photographing the faces of Canada. Having spent 12 years studying with the greatest photographic masters in North America, I developed a unique process to capture the essence of my clients. I want to bring out their greatness, their beauty, and to create original artworks for each one.

Canadian Centennial MedalI am the recipient of a Governor General’s Medal for some of my work celebrating Canada. Other accolades include having won the Grand Prize for Canadian Geographic Magazine.

As a teacher, creativity mentor/coach, author and public speaker, my goal is to inspire and to help each person live a more creative (i.e, fulfilling) life.

N.B. The artwork you see on this website was created by Helene Anne (except for image of her and her big Tango pup which was captured by her amazing assistant, Lynn Lacroix).

I wish to thank my clients for granting me permission to use their images on this site.  The paintings included herein are also my digital art.  Helene Anne
