In 2013 review of Wilson's work, Edward M. Gomez wrote that "a formalist's heightened sense of awareness and a perfectionist's attention to detail come together in Helen Miranda Wilson's superbly crafted oil paintings on small wooden panels. Formerly a painter 'from observation,' as she puts it, of magic-realist nature scenes, Wilson now creates compositions dominated by eye-catching colored stripes arranged in concentric circles, undulating waves or 'V' forms that suggest flowing cascades. Neatly ordered and intense, they hum with a concentrated energy that seems to emanate from the core of each painting-object like the auras of talismanic totems."
