About the Artist


Oxford based illustrator Helen Cauvy Foster first became involved with Oxford Fashion Week in 2014 when she sketched the models in motion, live, during their catwalk shows.

Helen started her career in fashion design studying at London’s Royal College of Art. She has always had a love for the quality of a hand drawn line and her ability to know which of these lines to leave out has become the foundation of her fluid and dynamic illustration style.

After graduating Helen went on to have her work published in international fashion magazines and also worked in house for fashion brands. She now divides her time between teaching and working on a variety of illustration projects.

She Joined Oxford’s Magdalen Road studios in 2012 and works under the studio name of ‘Light in the Forest’. A name derived from the traditional meanings of her name Helen - meaning light and Foster – keeper of the forest.
