Let Me Introduce myself

Helen Elphinstone-King

I am a Qualified Graphic Designer & Australian Artist .. located overlooking the beautiful Lake Macquarie, near Newcastle, New South Wales, approximately 2 hours north of Sydney, Australia

I am Watercolour Artist & Illustrator, as well as a Photographer…..
A diverse range of subjects, generally influenced from personal experiences of places that I have lived, be it Country or Coast, then combine that with a love of sailing, ocean, birds, animals & roses, which are also included in a wide variety of photography Always striving to transform my photos into drawings, then onto wonderful paintings, whilst enjoying the Journey along the way 

 NEWS :..

Have just been published in the April edition of Australian Artist  with my painting “Slips – Hirecraft Marine” .. will be hard for me to sell it now, given the emotion involved, with being published AND that the Marina will not be there for much longer…

I shall have two paintings entered in the Currabubula Red Cross Art Show,  17th – 20th May..Both paintings will of course be for sale as well …Opening night will held on Thursday and tickets are only $20..and other days entry into the Show will be $10pp All funds raised through the Currabubula Art Show & Sale are donated to the Australian Red Cross and this year will support the Western Region (NSW) Drought Fund.
Having lived in the surrounding area, I am very happy to be finally entering and knowing it will be helping support a worthy cause for our drought affected Farmers  .. 

As well I finished last year a high note, having won 2 awards

* Highly Commended at Town of Murals Art Prize .. for my painting ~ Mr Percival
