Helen Mudie Ioannidou was born in Scotland.
She trained as a teacher. In Turkey, she taught art and music at the Istanbul International Community School for 6 years. In Greece, she taught art at a children’s home in Paleon Faliron and took courses in life drawing, art history and ceramics at the Art Painting Centre in Glyfada, where she sculpted her first life models directly from clay.

Helen has taken part in numerous group exhibitions in Athens, Aegina, Istanbul and Scotland. In 2004, she had her first solo exhibition in Aegina, followed by three more in Athens (2007), Mykonos (2009), Aegina (2014) and Istanbul (2007). In 2016 Helen Mudie Ioannidou exhibited two life-size standing sculptures in the National Archeological Museum of Aegina.

Her work is in the collection at the Greek Embassy in Ankara and in private collections worldwide.

Why do Helen Mudie - Ioannidou's sculptures touch you? Part of the answer is in the tactile, sensual, immediate way that you are drawn to the bodies. They seem to have paused for a moment before life resumes, an instant captured before they move away. They invite your action, to touch and explore, and your reaction, to consider how still life can become.


Part of the answer is less visible, more emotional. The figures convey the essence of a being, the spirit of a person, the impression that you have already met and known each other.

The artist, however, will not express this in words, she conveys everything through the form, the physical and the metaphysical, the shape and the spirit.


The sculpture becomes a body, becomes a figure, becomes a person, becomes a friend.

Join our next Art Project by sending a tile to Gaudi Backyard Summer Project.

I am planning a new summer art project that involves Gaudi technique and will need a lot of tiles. In case you have one or two tiles that you don’t need and you are about to throw them away, instead send it over to us under the name Gaudi Backyard Summer Project.
