is a professional artist, website owner/designer and CEO of Pixiport.
Pixiport is undoubtedly one of the top major sites featuring the work of
professional photographers and artists all over the world. Helyn's
own artwork has been exhibited and recognized world
wide. Pixiport is similar to walking into a candy store: one
doesn't know where to begin, you just jump in and enjoy the
experience. I literally spent months perusing Helyn's site before
soliciting her work. Finally, when I requested a personal photo
for her feature, Helyn admitted that she didn't have many self
portraits. I was not only taken aback, but amused by the
revelation that a photographer didn't own many photos of herself.
What this revealed to me is that Helyn is very modest about her

many rewards of featuring her work. My gratitude to Helyn for an
illuminating interview and the opportunity to showcase her artwork.

Üzeyir was a last-minute surprise for this issue. I had for the
most part cut off submissions when his work arrived and I felt compelled
to include his work based upon the diversity of his writing (in five
different languages) and artwork which appealed to my senses
