Helen Twena received her training in England and Israel, including study at the Bezalel Art Academy in Jerusalem, Israel's most prestigious art school. Prior to immigrating to Israel in 1985 she worked for Hodder & Stoughton, the well-known British publisher. Helen's first love is designing children's books, but her artistic skills range from portraiture to magazine illustration. The illustrations Helen contributed to Jerusalem Perspective (JP) are not only eye-catching, they also help to clarify complicated concepts. In this way she has helped many JP contributors better communicate their ideas.
