We are deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Toronto writer and artist Helen Mclean.

A talented artist, she exhibited her paintings across Canada, she has shown in several cities and has painted portraits of authors Margaret Laurence, Michael Ondaatje, and Sarah Sheard. 

She also worked as a teacher and a journalist.

She was the author of Sketching from Memory (Oberon Press), Of All the Summers (Women's Press), and the acclaimed memoir Details From a Larger Canvas (Dundurn Press).
