Born in Britain, Hélène has lived in France for many years. Working in pastel, watercolour and acrylics she has a passion for capturing the light. Her subjects vary widely from portraits to landscapes and still subjects. Many of her paintings have a quality of stillness about them, capturing a moment, a detail, an image fixed in time. An intense interaction of light and contrasts.

Self taught, she has worked in Graphic art and as a professional artist for more than 25 years. A member of the Maison des Artists, she has exhibited widely, participating in shows in France, Poland, Italy, and St.Petersburg, Russia and solo exhibitions near her home in South West France and Paris.
