Biography

Helen graduated from Winchester School of Art in 1992 with a BA (Hons) in Printed Textile Design. She worked as a designer creating prints for the fashion market for over 25 years before her creative journey started to move into painting. She continues to explore her love of colour and composition as she creates abstract paintings mostly using acrylic paint.

Colour has the power to change our mood, as well as a way to express our mood. There is a particular richness to the colour of paint that can’t be captured in a photograph or print quite the same. In a world where so much is made by machines, having a handmade item in the home can stand out and bring contrast to a room. Contrast is also what creates interest both in art and in life. When choosing a piece of art, it not only has to sit well with the other colours in the room but also create the mood we wish to feel in that room.

Having created artwork on the computer for so many years, where colour can be changed so easily at the click of a button, Helen loves the process of painting. The layering up of colours and marks and the sometimes unexpected combinations that appear.
