After obtaining my degree in Graphic Design and History of Art at the PU for CHE (now North West University) in 2008, I started working for advertising agencies between 1998 and 2000, gaining valuable experience in the print and advertising industry in South Africa.
In March, 2000 I founded Gradico Visual Marketing Consultants CC in Kameeldrift West, Gauteng and managed this business for 8 years, doing corporate branding and photography for corporate clients such as Mercedes Benz Commercial Vehicles Centurion, Freightliner Truck Centre, LEAR Corporation SA (situated in Rosslyn) and Purion Networx.
In 2008 we moved to Jacobsbaai in the West Coast of South Africa and I became a stay-at-home freelance photographer and graphic designer, servicing clients in the tourism industry in the West Coast.
From February 2013 I became a full time artist in my home-based studio, Gretha Helberg Art Studio. I am currently preparing for my first solo exhibition "The Sea", that will be part of KKNK 2014.
