"food feeds the body,
but art feeds the soul" 

My career as a professional artist spans over 25 years. 

In that time I have exhibited, written books and articles for art magazines 

and have paintings in collections internationally.

I am also a GOLDEN Artists Paints artist educator. 


I'm inspired by the West Wales coast and the Yorkshire Wolds.
I am fortunate and live between both places, which I love.
My paintings, constructed in many layers of transparent pigments
 are described as happy and colourful observations of  landscape and life, and are based in
the landscape of imagination, emotion, and memory.






"Listening to Helen talk about her own work and philosophy,
hearing the genuine passion in her voice and the honesty with which she spoke.
The generosity with which she gave her experience time and support to encourage others to be creative
was inspiring and hugely motivating." Petra Couper, July 2020
August - Summer Sketchbook - 4 days
September - Abstracting the Landscape - weekend workshop
October - The Art of Colour - weekend workshop


My workshops are suitable for artists with some experience

and adventurous beginners who have:


a passion for paint
a desire for more
a longing for 'what if'....
"Helen has a wonderful way of teaching. She teaches with fact, quotes, demonstration,
enthusiasm and encouragement, all of which I find inspiring."
Sarah Jones, September 2020
