Meet Helga Sierra

Born and raised in Tegucigalpa, Honduras.

While her professional education was in Business (BBA, MBA) in the United States, art is something Helga has done her entire life. Starting art lessons at Carolina Carias’ Art Studio in Tegucigalpa from ages 8 to 18, followed by an art minor while studying business at Abilene Christian University. After completing her MBA in Nashville, Tennessee Helga experienced a personal crises, and art (painting), became a way to survive and express the different emotions that were happening around her. The expression of freedom within the abstract realm, provided an escape, moments in which time would stop. A year later, after an opportunity to live in Lisbon, Portugal for 3 months, Helga finally realized that without creating she’s not truly living.

In 2018 she opened her studio in Tegucigalpa, located in El Taller HN, a one of a kind creative house in a developing nation. Her abstract art is pushing boundaries in her native Honduras, where traditional portraits and landscapes have been the main focus throughout time.

Her current body of work “Movement” series explores the emotional repercussions of personal change of the human experience through the study of physical movement that people live every day, In October 2018, she presented 20 works at the Alianza Francesa Tegucigalpa, presented by the Ambassador of France to Honduras.

She participates in multiple group shows and is currently looking for international gallery representation.
