The Muses by H S Campoy: Contemporary Abstract Art

As an artist, I am driven by a passion for creating captivating and inspiring abstract paintings that capture the essence of my heritage and the many cultures I have encountered on my travels. With my Spanish and Brazilian roots, I bring a unique and vibrant energy to my work, infusing every stroke of the brush with the rich and complex tapestry of my personal history.

For me, art is a way to externalise the turmoil of emotions that often swirl within me, and my abstract paintings are a powerful testament to my creative spirit and the depth of my inner world. Each work celebrates colour and form, with dynamic movements and bold shapes that dance and play across the canvas.

Drawing on my experiences worldwide, my work is imbued with wonder and awe as I translate the many cultures and landscapes I have encountered into stunning abstract compositions. My use of colour is especially remarkable, with a vivid and diverse palette that is playful and evocative.

In my paintings, you can see the passion and energy that drives me as an artist, and it’s impossible not to be swept away by the beauty and depth of my work. With each brushstroke, I capture a moment in time, a feeling or a memory and transform it into a stunning visual masterpiece.

In abstract painting, I stand out as a true visionary, a master of my craft who constantly pushes the boundaries of what is possible with colour, form, and movement. My work celebrates life, love, and the endless possibilities within us all. If you still need to experience my art, I urge you to seek it out – it’s an experience you will remember!

Photography is the perfect marriage of science, art, and expression, all brought to life through the lens of human understanding. With each snapshot, light and chemistry come together to freeze a moment in time, capturing instants forever. But it’s the photographer’s sensibility that transforms those moments into art. That keen eye for the perfect instant, that precise moment where light and action align to create something meaningful. For the true photographic artist, that moment becomes a reflection of their own thoughts and emotions, transforming a public instant into something deeply personal and revealing. The likes of Annie Leibovitz, Dorothea Lange, and Diane Arbus elevated photography to new heights, using the camera to convey the pain, happiness, and beauty hidden in our world. But photography isn’t just art; it’s also a powerful tool for social and scientific understanding. From iconic images of historic moments to incredible glimpses of the invisible world, photography has the power to change how we see the world. For me, photography is a way to express my own feelings, thoughts, and discoveries, capturing the beauty of the world as well as its hidden corners. It’s a way to bring my individual perspectives to life, to take you on a journey to far-off lands and to experience the changing seasons in a new way.

Release book Asif, Perdão

São Paulo, August 2010 – A joyous celebration was held for the release of H. S. Campoy’s (Heleny Galati, her Brazilian pen name) new book “Asif, Perdão”. The book, which dives into the depths of forgiveness and redemption, had fans chomping to get a copy!

The atmosphere was electric, with delicious food and tantalising cocktails. A local DJ kept the night alive with their infectious rhythm as guests danced the night away. Everybody was anticipating the book launch, hoping to get a copy before they sold out.

Heleny, a guest on Rede TV+’s program, contributed to discussing women’s mental health and how the world affects it. She shared her personal experiences and insights, shedding light on the unique challenges women face daily. Heleny spoke eloquently about society’s pressures on women, including unrealistic beauty standards and societal expectations for women to juggle multiple roles and responsibilities. She also highlighted the importance of seeking support and speaking openly about mental health issues for individuals and society as a whole. Overall, Heleny’s participation added valuable perspectives to the conversation and helped promote greater understanding and awareness of women’s challenges in maintaining good mental health.

School news showing technology classes
In 1998 Heleny developed an approach to uniting different areas of human knowledge in one project called technology. The image shows two moments in 1999: a child amazed by science software and primary schoolers using the ability to create “machines”.

Working emotion on a technology class. It helps children develop better links, improve communication and transfer what they learn about themselves and others to work.

Heleny’s innovative approach to integrating various areas of human knowledge in one project, called technology, has had a profound impact on education. As a Science Coordinator and technology teacher, she developed a program that brought computers and other technologies into the classroom, allowing students as young as two years old to explore and engage with the world in exciting new ways.

The impact of Heleny’s approach is evident in the image that shows a child amazed by science software and primary schoolers using their creativity to build “machines.” By exposing students to technology at an early age, Heleny has helped to cultivate a generation of young minds who are comfortable with the tools of the modern world and are inspired to create, explore, and learn.

Heleny’s program has also demonstrated the importance of interdisciplinary learning, showing that students can develop a deeper understanding of the world around them by bringing together diverse areas of knowledge. This approach has benefited the students and served as a model for other educators to follow as they seek to inspire and engage their students in the wonders of science and technology.

Overall, Heleny’s work is a testament to the power of education to transform lives and inspire future generations. Her approach has helped to create a more informed, curious, and creative society, and her legacy will continue to inspire educators and students for years to come.

The Brazilian newspaper “O Estado De Sao Paulo” column presents a thought-provoking perspective on the intersection between education and technology. The author provides insightful analysis of the benefits and drawbacks of integrating technology into the learning process, highlighting the potential to enhance student engagement and individualised learning experiences while acknowledging the need to address the challenges associated with the digital divide and potential tech dependency. Overall, the column raises important considerations for educators, policymakers, and technology developers in shaping the future of education in Brazil and beyond.



We have connected traditional curriculum and technology for ten years, providing children and teachers with an engaging virtual world. Our program has fostered creativity, teamwork, analysis, and critical thinking. We have seen great success in student engagement, retention, and achievement as many have pursued STEM fields. We are proud of our impact on the school we worked. But, above all, we can follow those who passed by our classroom achievements in their life.

Painting and photographing the world inside and outside. Traveling the world and surfing the waves of unknown.

H S Campoy

The best moments happen when I am on the move – in Asia or America. Dry and sunny deserts, or snowy mountain-tops. In the middle of a Thai market full of people thriving to live. In a jungle, where every species competes to stay alive.

Once upon a time… Wait…life is not a fairy-tale. Life is tough, sometimes too tough! Life is fun, too, a combination of bitter and sweet. Life is life; no definition needed, simply take it, and do with it whatever it is possible to do.

“To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all.”
― Oscar Wilde

My initial step in gaining a concept of ‘living’, was to read. Books became my first love, the toy I most cherished; my ultimate desire. From this viewpoint, I have already been living life to the full. I can remember the very first book I held in my hands. It smelt of fresh ideas escaping into a dead world…bringing it to life. The pages were the path I took to transform that four year old girl into a dreamer.I grew up dreaming: with my books, with my music. The myriad of places I visited, exchanging my simple clothes, living life aplenty through the lives of each of those characters I adored. I was a fairy, a queen, a brave musketeer, a defiant knight, a wise philosopher. Those were my steps to becoming the ‘me’ I am today.

Idealistic, but not with my feet off the ground. Full of innovative ideas, yet always ideas imbued with a sense of real fantasy. Believing that everything is possible, I built my byways to now, to this very moment! Today, when I turn my eyes to the tree with its autumnal vestment, the birds are flying to another place far away; I will fly there too… Indeed, travel has been the other cherry atop my fairy-cake of life. The absolute pinnacle. The best moments happen when I am on the move – in Asia or America. Dry and sunny deserts, or snowy mountain-tops. In the middle of a Thai market full of people thriving to live. In a jungle, where every species competes to stay alive. It doesn’t matter where, life flows in my veins, a life worth being lived. This amalgam of books, travel and ideas, has created a person who is hard to define. Strange, reclusive, naïve – the ‘labelling’ has been persistent, but I have learned to accept it and move on.

This space is about ideas (mostly mine), mixed with travels, sensations and feelings. It’s not to anybody. It’s for the chosen. But, it is not for me to choose… it’s for you. Welcome then. Give me your mind, and take my hand, it will be something of a roller coaster through uncharted territory.
