Helen Dardik is a professional illustrator and surface pattern designer based in Canada. Vibrant, folksy, playful too-muchery is a perfect way to describe her style. Born by the Black Sea, Helen lived in Siberia for a time and then moved to Israel, where she studied art and design. In the early nineties, she relocated to Canada, where she earned a graphic design degree and found work as a designer and illustrator. Helen mainly works in vector using the magic of imagination combined with the magic of Adobe illustrator... but often watercolor, oil, gouache, embroidery, and vinyl find their way into her repertoire. Finding inspiration in her childhood, her 3 little girls, nature, vintage books, and midcentury design, Helen is determined to make her life into the most creative experience.
