HI! I'M HELEN

Here's a little bit about me and my work.

20210205_125559_edited.jpg

I rekindled my love of art and creativity in 2017 after leaving a successful and happy career in Local Government. Art is a long way from the spreadsheets and finances I used to work on...though perhaps not if you imagine the creativity needed!

Fast forward to 2019 and I'm drawing more things, and taking commissions and I'm really enjoying myself.  I won an award, I joined some groups and I was picking up skills from some of the best colour pencil artists out there.  2020 arrived and I won another award and I joined more groups and continued to work hard on my skills, specialising in realism, but always trying new things.

It's 2022 now, and I am still trying new things. I am beginning to find my artistic voice, and I have a solid set of skills to build upon. 

My personal work is always colourful, mostly unusual and often complex. Colour Pencils will always be a favourite for realism, but I enjoy exploring other ideas in other ways with other mediums.

I am proud to be an Artist Ambassador for Derwent, a member of the International Guild of Realism and the UK Coloured Pencil Society. 


I love to encourage people in their exploration of art and I have begun to pass on the knowledge I've learned about coloured pencils through workshops, live-drawing and [this year] on YouTube.

If you are interested in organising a workshop, please contact me for more details.

Feel free to browse my gallery to see completed work, or my journal page where you can see and read about the work on my board. 


I still take some commissions. You can read about prices and the process by clicking the link below, or you can get in touch and we can talk about what you'd like.

Thank you!
