The story behind the Forest Fawn

A girl escapes into the forest at night and under the stars she transforms into a fawn who is free to roam and do as she pleases. This story was created by a teenager in hospital, collaborating with artist Rachel Tynan during her long hospital stays. Since 2012, Helium Arts has led an artist in residence programme for teenagers in hospital, providing young people with creative and social outlets during their treatment. Inspired by her time working with the teenagers, Rachel designed the Forest Fawn.

Helium Arts connects chronically ill children to their creativity, so they can live life to the full….To learn more about Helium Arts see this short video.
