Helen Burroughs is a native of California who has travelled the world as part of her career in international trade and her personal interest in other cultures. She has visited over thirty countries taking the time to visit the art and gardens of the places she visited.

Seven years ago she decided to devote her energies full time to art. Much of her work builds on her love of folk art that dominates the countries of the former Soviet Union, South America, Asia, and Eastern Europe. The vibrant colors and emotional motif that characterize the development of art in these countries strongly influence her work. Ms. Burroughs enjoys using a broad range of both techniques and concepts. Her work utilizes oil, oil pastels, and acrylics, depending on which medium best suits the scene and emotions with which she is working. Ms. Burroughs has also utilized her interest in textile art, including embroidery, which she studied in France, to enhance her paintings. Most recently she has begun to study the impact of color on alternative subjects and she has completed works that include realistic scenes side by side with modern abstract paintings where both utilize the same color palette. She is best known for her lyrical landscapes as well as her paintings showcasing individual flower blossoms.

Her work has been displayed in a number of shows and galleries in Virginia, Maryland, Indiana and California. She is a permanent artist at the Jarretthor Fine Arts Gallery in Colonial Beach, Virginia.
