Helga Chart experiments with materials such as inks, resins and foils which she claims intrigues and attracts the viewer. Her art is made with the intent of being so fascinating that it is unavoidable. However, her creations do not just come to mind spontaneously, despite the fact that she likes to work with speed and urgency once she has the thought in mind. These ideas can take weeks, months, even years to develop, with periods of drought in between. Helga also enjoys creative experimentation and enjoys discovering new techniques and ideas. Her whole process becomes part of the art and the adventure, and she was influenced in pursuing this path in her early years by her tutors.

Edinburgh based artist Helga Chart studied at Edinburgh at the College of Art. This was followed by twelve years teaching in Edinburgh schools, and another fourteen years teaching and lecturing in art and design at the Edinburgh Telford College. Since then she has focused on her own personal projects, and has dedicated her time to her own painting and artwork.

Helga has frequently shown work with the Royal Scottish Society of Painters in Watercolour and Visual Arts, Scotland, and has been presented with awards from highly recognised societies. She has also previously served as vice president for both of these societies. Her work is held both in private and public collections and is widely collected in the UK and overseas.
