Helen’s love of art began at school in Oxfordshire where she had inspirational teachers. She went on to use her artistic and maker’s skills in textiles, completing a degree in fashion textiles at Sussex university. Helen spent her early career travelling abroad working for fashion houses in Europe, before setting up her own design business. She has successfully worked with quality natural yarns, designing contemporary commercial knitwear collections.
More recently however, Helen has had the opportunity to use her creative talent to follow her passion for sculpture and painting. Her inspiration comes from nature and wildlife and her focus is to portray a meaningful connection through her art.
She has sold work in galleries and has been selected to exhibit at the Sculpture School in Devon’s annual show and will also be exhibiting at the Oxfordshire Art Weeks this year. She also teaches Art and Design at summer schools to help others explore their creativity.
Alongside her own projects Helen is very happy to work on private commissions of wildlife and animal sculptures or paintings.
