About The Artist<br />

<strong>Helen</strong> <strong>Scalway</strong> trained as a sculptor at Kingston University and Chelsea College of<br />

Art. She taught in various schools and colleges before becoming an artist in<br />

residence in the drawing Studio at Wimbledon College of Art and in the Geography<br />

Departments of Royal Holloway, London University and of Exeter University. She<br />

has also worked with the Victoria and Albert Museum, London. She has shown in<br />

many exhibitions in the UK and internationally, including the Royal Academy<br />

Summer Exhibition.<br />

She long ago realised that drawing was always her first love. She always found it<br />

fascinating how people see, and what they manage to depict in their drawings.<br />

According to <strong>Helen</strong>….<br />

<strong>Helen</strong> <strong>Hitchman</strong> <strong>Scalway</strong><br />

“I’ve always drawn, ever since I was three and drew with my mum’s lipstick all<br />

over the white tiles in the bathroom, I still remember being entranced by the<br />

sensation of the soft lipstick gliding on to the hard shiny tiles and making<br />

wonderful rich marks. I got punished for it, of course, but I kept drawing<br />

compulsively, though not on the bathroom tiles anymore”.<br />

In <strong>Helen</strong>’s words “Drawing has always been my main means of expression as it is<br />

so good for thinking with, for remembering and imagining. I have loved teaching<br />

it and doing it!”<br />

<strong>If</strong> You <strong>Were</strong> a <strong>House</strong>, What <strong>House</strong> Would You Be?<br />

<strong>Helen</strong>’s question is can we think about the self in spatial terms,<br />

whereby the house or dwelling becomes a rich metaphor for<br />

identity? <strong>Helen</strong>’s house images and models are intended as a form<br />

of portraiture. The works are intended to be layered, objects and<br />

metaphor together.
