Helgesen has a great love for print techniques. With her background as a graphic designer, she has made conscious use of the distinctive qualities offered up by the technique. It is here that she develops and refines motifs she has worked on in her paintings, while she also works specifically with the explicit qualities of print techniques. She has worked both with lithographs and woodcuts, and it was during work on the latter technique that she saw the potential to develop relief painting.
