Monthly Meeting and Demo: Helen Harris: Aqua Oils

Date: September 23rd, 2020

Time: 7:00 PM- 9:00 PM


As a graduate of The University of the Arts, (Philadelphia College of Art) with a BFA degree in Graphic Design, Helen began her career in the commercial arts. 
Early employment in New York City with DC Comics, followed by a variety of freelance and teaching assignments ranging from coloring books to spot illustrations later evolved to include employment in signage and display with ColorCraft Signs in New Jersey. 
 
Originally from upstate New York, Helen relocated to New Jersey and raised three daughters. Graphic design assignments gave way over the years to a renewed interest in painting. 
Helen's paintings in watercolor, acrylics, mixed media and oil have included landscapes,seascapes,florals and abstracts, yet the subject matter that continually beckons her is landscape.
 
"I have walked the fields and played in the lakes,brooks and hiked the hillsides as a child and it was the remembrance and love of the tactile excitement of that experience that I wanted to focus on and share with my art collectors."
 
Helen originally was noted for the three dimensional use of rice papers,torn paper and textured gels combined with watercolor, gouache on paper. Always willing to risk change and learn, her travels cross country to the West coast, have influenced her work .
Currently, Helen has been engaged in the "dailypaintwork " process. Working at her easel or sketching outdoors, each day of work has pushed her to new levels of her study. These small paintings, using aqua oils, are a reflection of that daily experience.
 
Helen's award winning work has been exhibited in numerous outdoor shows and galleries on the East coast over the last 20 years representing her interpretations of the mountains of the West coast to the beaches of the Eastern coastline.

ABOUT NJ Paranormal Investigations:
Feeling uneasy in your house? Hearing unexplained sounds and are unable to find any logical explanation? Think it may be paranormal in nature? We can help!
New Jersey Paranormal Investigations uses the most advanced technology in the field of paranormal research to document the events that have been occurring. We either prove the events or we find a logical explanation to solve these situations.

We do this using the scientific method of a step-by-step approach consisting of:

  1. Identifying and defining a problem.
  2. Accumulating relevant data.
  3. Formatting a tentative hypothesis.
  4. Objectively interpreting the results.
  5. Repeating these steps until an acceptable solution is found.

We have over twelve years of experience in the field. New Jersey Paranormal Investigations has an outreach beyond our scope which includes demonologists, clergy, and parapsychologists who we consult and work with to find the best possible outcome for you and your family.

Barry Ruggiero has been investigating the paranormal for over twelve years. His area of expertise centers around hauntings and spirits with the application of basic physics. Scientific instruments which measure fluctuations in the environment, enables NJPI to document these occurrences. Infrared surveillance systems are utilized along with high end audio equipment to capture any abnormalities for documentation purposes.

Barry has been featured on the Woodbridge, NJ television network hosted by Mayor John McCormick to discuss the history and paranormal events of the township. He was also interviewed by News 12 NJ about the paranormal field highlighting historic landmarks known for activity. The Star Ledger newspaper did a feature article on his investigation on the Hannah Caldwell House where it is believed Mrs. Caldwell's spirit still resides at the site of her murder.
