Because there are many gourd artists who are unable to attend classes, she decided to write gourd instructional books that will teach her techniques and share tips of information she has learned. These books are very detailed and have Illustrations and/or step-by-step photos with written instructions. Hellen has taught students from Holland, Belgium, France, New Zealand, Germany, and USA. She travels to many states to teach at gourd festivals and retreats as well as teaches private lessons in her home. Each student receives a booklet with step-by-step photos/illustrations and detail written instructions to take home with them just in case they forget what they learned.

Hellen Martin is a national/international gourd artist. She prepares her fine art on gourds, wood, Cyprus Knees and other mediums utilizing her
carving, painting, pyrographing, woodburning, closed coiling, and pine needle coiling skills. She adds a more modern look to her work using metal coating and various partinas. She incorporates antlers, beads, and walnut slices on her pieces. Her gourd art is unique and shows her love of her work and her Blackfoot and Comanche heritage. She has won numerous awards for her painting, pine needle coiling, woodburning, and closed coiling. Since she applies her techniques on all her gourds, visit each page in order to view all her art. Hellen's Indian Maidens are one of her trademarks. Her maidens are known for having no facial features and vivid colored robes. Most of the Indian maidens are painted, but she has also started doing some of them with colored pencils that appear to be painted.
