Renee Dominique and Dave Lamar

Sometimes I pretend a Voice judge whilst perusing Youtube music…and when I come across amazing talent like in the above video, I’m like, “get out of here…this is too good to be true…”

Although my voice is silent and mouth motionless, my heart starts to sing, and people turn around to look at me…and good friends phone me…this is the oneness that people feel knowingly/unknowingly. Music is heaven…and although today was my birthday…and I told a couple of people…most of the world knew through the good feels…

I’m glad to be a musician and artist. Today was too good to be true.

Thank you to Renee and Dave (not to mention Maroon 5) for their passion, talent, and shared joy.


H.M. Lee Art Gallery

As my friend Grant says, “So this is where the magic happens…”


Right now, I’m only available via email and text (my phone and “electronics” time is being replaced with jewelry-making, book-creating and music/art teaching time…thank you for your understanding…


Some of the 100 Hummingbirds and other art (and music)…and yes, there’s another 4th wall display area not shown here…gallery visits are by appointment only…

This Helenbobelen’s art is inspired by the Creator, and yes, it’s both visual art crossing over with “audial” art (– sometimes I do paint by the noises I hear out in the street…kinda hard to explain).

I do think my strongest artistic ability is my ability to sing and play music. So much in fact that when people here in Austin see me musically perform, they’re surprised to find that I’m also a visual artist/designer/writer…and athlete. (So yes, this combination can only be inspired by something much greater than this human body/brain.)

The true caretaker in me is the one that sings, that feels calm, and that calms others who listen judgement-free…

Also, it’s a wonderful dream to have a small art space where I can lovingly display and be surrounded by my 7+ years hummingbird art efforts…not to mention sing/play a tune or two…

Thank you to kind/talented podcaster Youngman Brown who appeared just at the right time in my life to prod me along and broadcast the kind side of what human artists do with the great help of some Universal magic. Thank you to Clayton for offering me the Portland, OR exhibit/First Thursday. Thank you to Stephanie here in Austin for her wonderful ability to co-lead with vulnerability, true goodness and power.


P.S. Vocalists that I’ve studied with: NYC jazz-singer Michelle Carr, Broadway Performer/Meditator Teri Merliss, Opera-singer Maria Todaro, and NYC Cari Cole Voice Studios…thank you…thank you…thank you…
