Helga Schleeh is a Canadian multimedia artist exhibiting internationally, specializing in drawing, installation, clay, paper and printmaking.
She also organizes workshops in art, music and spirituality, as well as teambuilding for organizations and businesses.

These images are created by simply sanding a blank paper and letting the light placed underneath emerge. There are sometimes more than one layer of paper. There is no drawing or pigment whatsoever, and this is a totally unique process.
She has given workshops all over Canada and the US. She was the representative for Canada for the first world wide exhibition of art on line and worked with the United Nations – both in New York and in Montreal, using art for peace and for the environment. Her video on the beauty of the creation of the planet (sponsored by Unesco and the Canada Council), was featured at the 2005 Conference for the United Nations on Climate Change. Her exhibitions at the UN in New York in conjunction with her talks on peace have affected people from all over the world. See www.fullcirclemandala.com for more info.
