WELCOME TO rudolfhelder.com

My name is Rudolf Helder. I am an artist and do websites for you, your business, or your organization. The rudolfhelder.com website is about my work, but you might argue it's mostly about me--which is a scary idea. Say quickly me, me, me, me, me. Irritating, isn't it? However, as an artist you can't avoid tooting your own horn, so I try to do it loud and clear. Hoompf!

rudolfhelder.com is the name under which I conduct my freelance business.

Now we come to the part where I tell you that I am the recipient of awards for both my graphic work and fine art, have lived in the USA for over 11 years, came from The Netherlands, and now call Hawaii my home. There you have it.

Oh, and I made a career in the areas of painting, illustration, graphic and interactive design, photography, and writing. Select from the areas below. Most importantly, I am available for commissions. The application of my art allows me to feed myself and my young son Kaeo, who I adore, and raise as a single parent.

For some self-indulgent chatter you could read the artist's statement I wrote for an exhibition, or select items from the menu at the left if you enjoy facts and nothing but.

To face the man behind the myth view a Polaroid in which I pose next to a painting, bearded, and looking unusually grumpy, or select a more relaxed photo booth picture without beard, next to my son, or a more official portrait.

It's nice to have you as a visitor at the rudolfhelder.com website and I hope you enjoy yourself enough to return from time to time.

I'll have some fresh HTML on the stove.
