Helena Wurzel is a painter living in Cambridge, MA. In 2007 Helena received an MFA in painting from Boston University. She started working with the online start-up www.20x200.com, which sells high quality archival prints of her work in 2011. It was through this venue, that a design director at Kate Spade saw the painting entitled “My Butt” and asked Helena to paint an ad campaign for the promotion of their new Saturday line. Helena worked with the company from their launch in 2012 until they closed in 2015. Jonathan Adler, the design guru, saw her work in a Saturday store and she displayed her paintings in his retail stores in Los Angeles, Miami, and online from 2015-2018. She has also won Massachusetts Cultural Council Grants in 2010 and 2016. In addition to her studio practice, she teaches high school drawing and painting at the Buckingham Browne & Nichols Upper School in Cambridge.
