Award commemorative plaque for Grammy-winning New Age composer Laura Sullivan, who just released her video project, “900 Voices.” Today Helen spends time creating both functional and wearable art glass and filling special orders for clients. She offered one piece of advice to anyone who wants to pursue an artistic GILROY • MORGAN HILL • SAN MARTIN career: “You need to make sure you really love what you do. It’s a rough road when trying to make a living. You need to be willing to put yourself out there.” Once Helen took that leap of faith, her rough road began to smooth out and today her glass studio is in high production.
