  • Biography

    Helen Boden is a professional printmaker who graduated from Chelsea School of Art in 1991 with a masters in Printmaking.

In 2008 she set up Bodenpress printmaking studio that is fully equipped for all intaglio and relief printmaking techniques. The workshop promotes the traditional methods of hand-inked plates and printed using a hand pulled etching press.

    Helens own work considers the structure of architecture,  a decorative feature becomes part of the composition and the piece develops through the print stages. The golden section helps form part of the planning stage of a composition.
