Helen Nelson was born and raised in the Grand Rapids area. Art has been a part of her life ever since she can remember, beginning when she was 3, drawing horses, in high school with four years of art classes, and taking fine art classes or visiting the Louvre. She did not pursue a career in art until she retired from her job.Over the years Helen has worked with numerous mediums, but when she was introduced to fused glass in the late 90's, she became intrigued then addicted. Fusing glass became her passion and the perfect medium to express the artist inside. Helen’s training includes several classes at Kendall College including design. She has studied with some of America's top fused glass artist, along with years of experimentation, trial and error on her own. Helen has won several awards at Delphi Glass competitions and at art shows, her work also been featured in Delphi Glass publications. She now sells her work galleries and at Art Shows in the Midwest
