Helaina Sharpley

Helaina Sharpley is an award-winning wirework artist from West Yorkshire who exhibits nationally and internationally. Working from her studio at The West Yorkshire Print Workshop in Mirfield, she creates intricate and elegant wirework wall pieces that cross the boundaries between drawing and sculpture.  Initially inspired by the rituals and etiquette of tea drinking of days gone by, early work focussed on chintzy china cups and Victorian architecture. A variety of commissions have led to new explorations of rural landscapes and British flora, developing, and pushing new wire-working skills.
