About The Artist
Helen is based in West Sussex, near the Hampshire border. She originally developed her painting practice through a love for depicting wildlife and finds immense pleasure in conveying life in her subjects. Human figurative work is also proving to be very satisfying, along with landscapes and still life. Please see her website for a fuller picture of her work.
Originally self-taught, she developed her painting techniques assisted by workshops, tutorials, books and most importantly, a lot of practice and observation. Keen to explore every aspect of her artistic self, Helen is currently taking a degree in painting at the Open College of Arts. She works in oils, acrylic, gouache graphite pencil, charcoal and pastels and often experiments with other mediums.
Awards / Exhibitions
Helen's paintings have won Visitor’s Choice awards in local exhibitions; her work has also appeared in online exhibitions and her painting of a nurse for Portraits for NHS Heroes (2020) was selected to appear in the beautiful book for this project, published by Bloomsbury Press.
