THE OWL HOUSE
Helen Martins lay ill in bed one night with the moon shining in through the window and considered how dull and grey her life had become. She resolved there and then, that she would strive to bring light and colour into her life. That simple decision to embellish her environment was to grow into an obsessive urge to express her deepest feelings, her dreams and her desires.
