Her art career began at age 14, when she sold her paintings to local banks and neighborhood businesses. A distinguished student, Helane graduated from Art Center College of Design with honors in Illustration, and shared her knowledge and inspired other artists by teaching anatomy figure drawing at the California Art Institute. Her book, "A Drawing a Day by Helane," showcases her illustrations and describes her methodology to teach and encourage those who aspire to draw.

Helane is adept at creating artwork in all forms of media, from traditional oil-on-canvas to airbrush to digital drawing on her state-of-the-art Cintiq.

She has also developed an astonishing ability to reproduce the styles of some of the world's most famous artists, from Norman Rockwell to Roy Lichtenstein. Even Disney had to carefully study a Jackson Pollack impression she did for them to be sure it wasn't the real thing!

Demo Artist
The WVAG is pleased to welcome Helane Freeman as its September 3, 2019 Demo Artist.


Helane Freeman is an accomplished artist with a passion for turning paint, pencil and pixels into emotion, movement and perspective. As an illustrator and art director, Helane worked for Disney, Warner Brothers, Nickelodeon, CBS Records and Sony, among others, and designed over 100 record album covers, including Frank Sinatra - Radio Years and NWA's Straight Outta Compton, named one of the 25 best album covers of all time by Digital Arts Magazine.

Helane has earned six RIAA Gold and Platinum Albums and a Hollywood Reporter Key Art Award, and she received the rare honor of having her work displayed in the Smithsonian Institution as part of its Priority Records "The California Raisins" exhibit, now part of the museum's permanent collection.
