About Helena Guzmán – Owner & Creative Director

Helena-Guzman-2015Helena Guzmán was born in São Paulo, Brazil – South America. She was raised in Indianapolis, Indiana – USA and now resides in Ottawa, Ontario – Canada.

She received her Bachelor of Arts degree at DePauw University and the GLCA New York Arts Program (Great Lakes College Association) majoring in Studio Fine Arts, History, and Education. Her creative background is in charcoal drawing, multimedia art, sculpture & installation, as well as graphic arts & photography.

Helena opened her first company, TomatoWorks Art Studio, in 1997. TomatoWorks provided creative marketing, arts and educational services to schools, small businesses and community organizations, such as museums and libraries, throughout Indiana and Illinois.

TomatoWorks Art Studio offered business services, such as: Marketing, Arts Consultation, Grant & Technical Writing, as well as Event Planning. Specialized fine art workshops were also offered for adults, children of all ages & families that encouraged creativeness in thinking and hands-on experiences with the arts.

In 2001, Helena closed her business after receiving the opportunity to teach full-time at the newly created college-prep school, University High School. As Head of the Art Department and Visual Arts teacher, she developed a 4-year arts curriculum and taught art for grades 9-12.

Then in 2006, Helena moved to Canada as a permanent resident. She opened HGF Design Studio and began working as a graphic designer full-time.  Beginning in June 2014, Helena re-launched her business as Helena Guzmán Design and now offers integrative design, project and social media management services for a variety of clients and community partners throughout North and South America.

As a designer, I collaborate with small business entrepreneurs and health-conscious individuals to assist them with design, project and social media management. I also value the importance of music, visual & performing arts and the humanities in promoting happiness and well-being.

I teach individuals how to make healthy food and lifestyle choices, as well as helping them find a path to live happier and healthier lifestyles. #HealthyU

Look forward to working with you!
