INSPIRATION & STYLE
While painting is something she started at a young age, it was traveling that challenged her way of looking at the world. Helga has traveled to over 25 countries, and the observations from these travels still influence her today. They have instilled a love for both nature and modern urban settings, as well as a love for cultures.
After a 3 month journey in Europe during the fall of 2016, she worked on 3 painting series that were a part of her art show Heart Portraits, in Tegucigalpa. However, it is a variety of activities in daily life that inspire her most. You'll find her playing sports, going to new coffee shops and reading new books, exploring parks, mountains or beaches: keeping her inspiration sources fresh.
In May of 2015, Helga received an MBA degree with a concentration in non-profit management, as part of the select group of Global Hope MBA scholars from Lipscomb University. As a final stage to complete her MBA she pursued starting a social enterprise to empower children from low income neighborhoods through art (LUNNA).
To this day LUNNA has worked with 280 children in Tegucigalpa, who have received high quality art lessons in order to inspire their creativity. In this process Helga curated an art show where, 90 of those children presented paintings and photographs in the inaugural: EXPO Descubre Tu Talento 2015. LUNNA continues in its start-up stage with the goal to empower kids of low-income neighborhoods through art & provide opportunities for artists to serve globally.
