mainly on Christmas boxed cards and single cards for most of the major
greeting card companies in the UK. Helen is great to work with. Fun and
friendly, she is enthusiastic, reliable and meets all her deadlines. I
would recommend Helen to anyone and I look forward to working with her

"Rourke Publishing had the pleasure of working with Helen Poole this past year (2011) on our Little Birdie Fiction Readers. Helen did a fantastic job on the illustrations for the book, and the outcome was superb. She was right on schedule with her sketches and final art, and was great with communicating even being time zones and a half a world apart. We have already contacted her regarding future work for our company, and look forward to working with her again."
Renee Brady, Art Director/Graphic Artist, Little Birdie Fiction Readers, Rourke Publishing.

Everything you'd hope and need from an illustrator you can trust and rely upon to work with you."
Anthony Hannant, Creative Director, Holland Publishing.
“I have worked with Helen over the last six years, mainly commissioning illustrations for the award winning teenage magazine, Shout. Helen is always a pleasure to work with. Her jobs meet every deadline and she is one of the most reliable illustrators I have worked with. Helen can turn work around extremely quickly. She is always bubbly and friendly and all my staff really enjoy communicating with her.”

“I’ve known Helen for 10 years and she has collaborated on various projects for my company. Helen is extremely creative and her style is appealing, innovative and very commercial. She has a very professional attitude to her work and as demand for her artwork has steadily increased, Helen has maintained efficiency and organisation to ensure deadlines are met. If you have a project that needs some creative input then you can’t go wrong with giving Helen a call.”
