Meet the Maker
Hello! My name is Amanda Baris and I’m the artist and owner behind Helnart Creations based in sunny San Diego. Helnart Creations is a small art business that I started in early 2020 specializing in pyrography, painting and wood working that is inspired by nature. I love bringing functional art into the kitchen to bring people together or creating a piece of art to hang up your house to spark a conversation. Each piece is designed and handmade by me and for commissions I ensure to work with my clients to bring their vision into fruition!
I’ve been creating art since I was 5 years old and I was first introduced to pyrography when I was 11 by my grandmother. After a very long hiatus I decided to try pyrography again in 2020 and boy was I hooked! I work out of my home studio while working a full time job to support my art passion!
One of my favorite things to do is coming up with concepts for people who may have just an idea of what they are looking for. I love to create pieces that inspires people or invoke passion and to spark conversations.
Thank you so much for reading and being interested in my work! Be sure to check out my shop tab to purchase a one of a kind piece or visit my gallery to see my work.
