HTD started life back in 1994, when Helena graduated from university, armed with a degree in surface pattern design. She went to work for Liberty, and after that went on to work as a fashion designer and an interior designer, for a time. But it was after her children, Iris and Louis, were born that HTD became what it is today. Art inspired by life.
Helena’s work has evolved from her love of words, all things vintage and a few blasts from the past! Inspired by family, music, having fun and a bit of silliness, Helena is a pen and paper kinda gal and this is how every idea starts. Splicing the old with the new to reinvent classics, creating a distinctive style all of her own. Her mix of hand drawn illustrations, painting, iconic British imagery, words, letterpress and prints creates a warmth and richness that finds a place in people’s hearts. Capturing nostalgia with a contemporary twist.
Helena’s work has been licensed and sold by John Lewis, is available on Not On The High Street and also in a growing number of independent retailers throughout the UK & abroad. The product range is always expanding but currently includes prints, stationery, personalised gifts and home wares. High quality products, excellent service and a sunny disposition, make the HTD team lovely people to buy from.
We love working with a community of like-minded people who are proud to support emerging British talent and who want to help businesses grow, just like us.

Lovely print for my little boy's bedroom - initially bought two and so pleased with them, I was soon back for more!
Beautiful choice for our daughter's nursery. Happen to be her favourite nursery songs! Would suit most decor & we've had lots of compliments. Prompt delivery & packaged flat to prevent furling at edges. Thank you.
A gorgeous, gorgeous print, looks beautiful in my baby boys room - fantastic that it fits a standard A3 ikea frame too!
Just come back from a few days in N Norfolk to a very welcome envelope. The print is superb as always. Just a little note to say a massive thank you to you, for your generosity and thoughtfulness. Thank you again.
So pleased with the pictures, have had lots of amazing compliments, just beautiful. They make my little boys nursery so special.
Absolutely fantastic wrapping paper. Communication with the owner was brilliant. Very happy customer and I would highly recommend their products.
It was a lovely print and I was so pleased with it. I paid extra to have it framed which was well worth it.
