Art has always been an interest but not until later in life was I able to indulge myself in choosing it as a career. I did a Foundation at Abingdon (which was learning in overload!) then a BA Hons at Swindon College in 2006. Subsequently I have worked mostly in relief printing of various kinds - specialising in Lino and Screenprint.
I exhibit mostly locally, but in the last couple of years I have had work accepted and hung in Bristol West of England Academy, Bankside London in the 'Masters In Print' and Wells Contemporary Art in Somerset. I was also due to have some ceramic Plaques hung in Gloucester Cathedral to commemorate the Bosnian Genocide this July but that was cancelled due to the Covid events. During lockdown I have taken the opportunity to brush up on my drawing skills and have been enjoying learning to work with pastels...so much to learn, so little time!
Helen is happy to accept commissions.
