Helen Harrison

Helen Harrison got her training in wood by building (with her husband) a 38’ boat that was her home for eleven years. After settling in Key West she opened Harrison Galley to display her beautifully finished sculptures that are made from natural, native plants. She writes, “I chose materials taking into account strength, shape, flexibility and availability: fibrous palm frond, calabash [gourds] and stone allow me to incorporate color with my overlying passion for wood.”

Helen has received many honors and awards for her work.
