Helen was born and raised in the Bronx near Pelham Bay Park. She is from an Italian and Polish background, and has loved art since she was young. She was attracted to the Youth Insights program because she wanted to be in an environment where she could be surrounded by art as well as make some of her own. Helen believes art is a central part of her life, and she is specifically interested in photography. A couple of her favorite artists are Andy Warhol and Van Robinson. She also loves film, especially the work of Woody Allen, Stanley Cooper, and Jean-Luc Godard.
My concept lies within the past.
I am only a remnant of it now.
