I’m Helen, and I’ve been painting ever since I could hold a paintbrush… I discovered botanical illustration 7 years ago, and I’ve fallen in love with it; I feel as though I have found my painting ‘niche’, although I try to never stop exploring! I’m currently working as a junior doctor in Dorset, England. That leaves me limited time to paint, but it’s the perfect escape from a busy schedule!
I completed the Society of Botanical Artists Distance Learning Diploma in March 2016. I graduated with distinction and with the Award for Excellence, for the highest mark in the diploma portfolio.
When not studying or painting I’m with friends and family, usually drinking copious cups of tea, relaxing with a movie/tv box set or a good book, keeping fit, or walking my dogs (Lily and Douglas) in the Kent countryside where I call home.
