Helen Casey Makara Gallery is also on Facebook.


Hi – you’ve reached the website of artist, illustrator and drawing teacher Helen Casey, currently based in her art gallery at Makara Beach in Wellington, New Zealand.

This website has been designed to showcase examples of my work as an artist and freelance illustrator as well as providing information about my drawing classes.

Creating art to lift the heart and grace the home, seeing eye to eye with my clients to provide them with illustrations that bring their products and services to life,  and providing lessons which develop and extend aspiring artists is what I strive for.

My lessons equip students of all ages with greater drawing skills which allow them to progress in their tertiary studies to disciplines such as graphic design, architecture and the fine arts. Others simply enjoy drawing and want to become better artists. The classes are held in my art gallery at Makara Beach opposite the café.

I hope you enjoy looking at my drawings and paintings.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any queries.
