Helen is an abstract collage artist. She describes her style of working as ‘painting with paper’. Her primary technique is using a gel plate and acrylic paints to produce Monotype prints on tissue paper, which are then used to make collaged pictures that invite the viewer to look more closely at the layers, implied textures and the colours created when layers overlap.
Helen’s work is influenced by the passage of time, whether the cycle of life in nature or decay in industrial buildings and urban spaces.
She likes to explore the different layers, colours and textures that build up in those diverse environments.
