You really captured the light and movement with an incredible aliveness. The cellist caught the same feeling and I love hearing the breath of the musician. It is another part of the music and the sense of water.

Your youtube video is peaceful, serene, beautiful and gorgeous. The photos really appeal to me. Did you enhance the colors or were they really that incredible?? I love the music too.

Her paintings could be examined as maps of many kinds of internal territories. Rich with color energy and power, these landscapes and seascapes can show inevitable routes and byways found as a human soul is transformed from the inside out. Helena Cooper has a way of drawing us into the potent world of each of her paintings, allowing us to trace a wide range of feelings and paradoxes for ourselves. Personal transformations seem to be guided as much by some unseen hand as they are by a logical, inevitable human process. How does this work? Assisted by Helena Cooper's wisdom, we can look into her paintings as we explore these beautiful questions.I have had the opportunity to perform music at Helena Cooper's art openings, and have chosen a painting of hers to appear on a CD cover of my original music.

Helena's work is vibrant and authentic and bold! It says "yes" over and over for me as it hangs in my home ...
— Jayne Demakos, musician
I love living with Helena's painting as do my family and friends. Though intimately engaging, it also offers a bold jolt of life from which thick colors ooze and forms emerge. I never tire of gazing into it, and surprise myself as I discover shapes in it I had not noticed before. As a jewelry designer myself, I understand the heady mix heavily saturated color can infuse into one's life experience. This painting is often the first object my art patrons see when they enter my home, and I like it being their first impression and my daily fare.
— Lainey Papageorge, jeweler
I fell in love with the painting — all reds and oranges — I wanted to surround myself with those colors, to keep that warm energy close by.

I have Helena's work hanging in both my office and my home because it captures much of what I hold sacred: beauty, art, and the soul. Helena's painting are a moving meditation on life itself.
— Barbara Platek, MA, LMHC, Jungian Psychotherapist
Helena's painting emerges straight from the depths of her unconscious. In serving as an open channel to realms of primal truth, she allows us to visit them as well, and to touch their sacred, mysterious depths.
I bought your art because it felt right. The paintings I bought for my nephews really felt like I was giving something of me — something from my world to theirs, a unique gift. It was very meaningful.
— Lenny Silver, mathematician, astrologer
Helena Copper has the ability to draw images from the deepest levels of the psyche and spirit realm and to magically capture the energy, movement and power of these images. Helena' works speaks to one on many levels and is so fluid that new and varied images and impressions are continually evoked. I was honored to have her painting grace the cover on my book, Healing of the Soul: Shamanism and Psyche.
What I wanted to convey was the power of the work to go to the deepest places and to continually evoke new and varied images. Often people have told me that my book jumped off the shelf at them and I am sure that it is the power of your work that drew them in.
— Ann Drake, author, Shamanic healer, therapist
Helena's work vibrates with passion and sensuality holding great depth of color and shapes. There is a pulsating splendor of life manifested in each one. The refinement of her personality, her Brazilian roots all contribute to creating an extraordinary piece of music to the eyes.
— Manuela Amzallag, designer
These are some of the reasons I have bought Helena Cooper's Art. Her art really appeals to me. It is extremely colorful, dramatic and full of her passion. The colorful landscape appeals to my sensibilities. Her paintings wake me up and excite me. They have an enormous amount of movement in them. If I won the lottery I would own more of her paintings.
Her art speaks to somewhere deep inside me. Helena Cooper has a special gift to be able to express her self in this form of paint and paper. I would be so grateful for that talent. I so enjoy gazing at her work in my house.
