Hello! I'm Helen and I knew from being a really young child that I was born to be an Artist. But you know what? It took me over 3 decades to have the confidence to actually do it!
I dipped my toe into the water a few times during my 20s and 30s - but somehow the voice of doubt crept in and I went back to doing a 'sensible job'. I know how it feels to lack in confidence, to be afraid of making a fool of myself in front of my family and friends and I hold a degree with first class honours in overthinking!
So, believe me when I say I know how frustrated you feel if you have a dream, a niggle that needs answering, but you have never been able to act on it.
And that is why all my current artwork is inspired by messages to encourage us all to get out there, make mistakes, be ourselves and live the life we were born to lead.
I have spent many years developing skills to help me take some tentative steps out of my comfort zone, and through my painting and my 'words of winging it wisdom' I am ready to help and encourage you to do the same.
So, what's your dream? Your niggle? Be bold enough to acknowledge it and we can step out of our comfort zones together...
Helen lives in Warrington, Cheshire in the North West of England with her husband Paul, her 2 daughters Maisie and Isobel and Cassie Dog the Golden Retriever, who has wagged her tail through Helen’s paints on more than one occasion! She drinks her tea strong (Earl Grey please), her wine red and believes that cake is a vital part of a happy life :)
