ABOUT THE ILLUSTRATOR, HELEN GOTLIB

CLICK HERE TO VIEW THE ILLUSTRATIONS

Helen Gotlib was born and raised in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
While earning a BFA in printmaking from The University of Michigan, Helen won the Ann Arbor Artisan’s Market poster competition. During each of her four years at U of M, Helen's work was selected for the annual end-of-the-year Student Art Exhibit. While taking her junior year abroad in Kyoto, Japan, she was asked to participate in several art shows.

In college, Helen divided her time between scientific illustration and  printmaking. Her experience in scientific illustration helped her develop  her ability to produce very detailed work. Her interest in printmaking  evolved as she studied many different methods including lithography,  intaglio, and wood block printmaking with water-based inks.

Helen has traveled extensively. Her observations of people and customs in Japan, China and Israel have influenced her perception of the human body and how expressive it is. Her life drawings reflect what people can express with isolated parts of their bodies. Helen has had two one-woman exhibits in Ann Arbor. She has also displayed her work in numerous other shows.
