Hello, I'm Helen, welcome to my website!

Initially trained as a Graphic Designer in the mid eighties, I have worked in the creative and communications industry for over 22 years. In 2010, I took a career break and returned to university and completed my degree in Illustration and Printmaking with first class honours. Having completed my PGCE in art teaching, I now practice as an art tutor, artist, printmaker, Illustrator as well as designer.

My work spans a variety of disciplines and mixed media. My practice forms a process of exploration of many aspects of cultural, observational, historical and mythical references.

I like to experiment with a cross section of mediums in order to encapsulate the essence of my subject matter and maximize my creativity. This includes the use of many print processes such as photo-transfer and etchings, as well as screen-printing and lino-cut printing. My real love however, is for drawing and I have recently enjoyed creating images using pen and water colour washes.

I have recently appeared on the BBC paints Jubilee' and have worked with Dean Morris of www.deanmorriscards.co.uk.
