Helen Wilson is a black/dual heritage (Jamaican and English) working class, professional, artist from Bristol, England. Her principal medium is figurative painting (in oils). Helen’s work addresses social and cultural issues including Bristol’s transatlantic slave trade and the genocide in Rwanda.

“Helen is an extraordinary artist with an important, compelling and compassionate mission: to tell and retell the story of Rwanda’s genocide in ways that underline and emphasise the dignity, resilience and humanity of the genocide victims – both those whose lives were lost and those who survived.”

Eddie Chambers from “Making Sense a Rwandan Story” Catalogue
