H. Helmy began painting when his niece and nephew asked him how a graphic he had designed on the computer would look on canvas. He bought art supplies, started painting, and hasn’t looked back. His love of nature serves as the source of his inspiration. His works are stories with excitement and surprise with the titles adding extra dimension. His work has been at the M.O.T.H. Gallery of Fine Arts in Ontario, and the Grand Forks Art Gallery, British Columbia, and has been auctioned for the benefit of the Make A Wish Foundation of Eastern Ontario and WPBS-TV. Mr. Helmy is an artist living in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.
