Helen developed her love of art since the early 1980's when she took up

Her paintings, particularly of the Northumbrian sea and landscapes have been much sought after as commissions.
She has a portfolio of over 20 signed limited edition prints sold locally as well as worldwide, especially in Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, USA, Canada and Europe.
