G’day I’m Helen..
Australian Watercolour Artist & Graphic Designer, located overlooking the beautiful Lake Macquarie, 2 hours north of Sydney..

“there is beauty in everything I see ….so I try to capture the beauty.. and keep the memories “..

Painting a diverse range of subjects, strongly influenced from a love of sailing & the ocean, horses, birds and all animals. Always striving to transform my photos into drawings, then onto paintings, whilst enjoying the Journey along the way. I paint my Watercolours, in a Realist impressionistic way & enjoy the challenge of painting new subjects & learning new techniques…. I have many who have purchased my paintings, both local and internationally, and they are always quite eager to see new work & add to their collections, to which I always appreciate their support
