Artist Statement

"Since the late 19th-early 20th century, industrial metal nameplates have been used to identify machinery. Engraved and and riveted into place, they're made to last through the most extreme conditions -- a useful feature for a Victorian-era time traveler. The rest of the imagery is more ephemeral, conveying a dreamlike motion...mechanical gears, vague memories represented by the soft outlines of an old clock and archaic globe fading away...Modern colors. The old and the new together." - Helen Bartley

Helen Bartley has always been and continues to be a designer, illustrator and writer.
