Helena Hötzl, Swedish painter and illustrator, spent much of her childhood in pain, enduring many surgeries, using her dreams and art to satiate a hunger for escape. London’s Saatchi Gallery helped her art go international with her first exhibition in Budapest in 2008. Her career focus is on empowering girls and women. Even if it’s tough, and life is really bad, it always changes in some way, if you really want to follow your dreams. Have faith, believe in yourself, even though it's a battle every day. I've learned that every time I thought I had failed, something better came.
