We all hear the modern buzz words of 'mindfulness' and 'meditation' and 'using the breath'.  Yet what is that really?

For me, its a sitting and suspending my thinking mind.  An allowing of the space within to be a blank canvas for heartfelt reflections and memories to come as they will.  For dreams, hopes and aspirations to uplift the spirit.

As an intuitive artist there is rarely any planning to a piece.  It's a letting go of control, to allow the painting to self create, to flow and develop in a timeless state without a narrative.  A spontaneous exploration of colour, form and spatial relationships with broad, energetic swooshes and strokes.  Palette knife daubs and stylised brush work, building layers that can be impressionist, surreal or semi abstract.  Taking a lifetime of inspirations from the natural world.

With each collection shown I offer my story, based on the insights that I can read from the symbolism in my view.  This will be my story that I have spent time getting to know.  You may discover your own story.  You can read more about my processes on the 'About' page.

Every picture is an invitation from my heart to yours.  A Helen manifested space in which to rest.   To stop, to take a breath, and step into a journey to a place of serenity and solitude.  To be as you need to be, to feel as you need to feel.

Whats Happening

So here I am in the lead up to the Summer Solstice.  The sky aurora activities from a few weeks ago were even visible from my back garden and such a joy to witness. a reminder perhaps that huge shifts of energy can be joyful. 

My hubby and I have been away on holiday in Keswick and Bellingham, and though it was a mixed bag of weather we found ourselves relaxing and enjoying the quiet.  We even took opportunity to get up close and personal with a full moon. We booked a visit to an observatory in Battlestead. Yes, its a dark skies area but weather conditions not the best for full sky viewing.  Very interesting though, and I bought a new rock for my ever expanding collection!

 

Those distractions of submitting to open calls have borne fruit.  Through the month of June my work will be available to view in 4 different locations, Altringham, Blackpool, Clitheroe and Clapham, North Yorkshire.  I'm am, as ever, still creating and considering, with heart lead intentions, where I feel I want my art practice to go in the next few months,  starting to create opportunities to reach further in person. To that end I have booked a space to hold a solo show, July 14th to July 28th in Blackpool at HIVEArts.  A retrospective of sorts.  Planning to create a small art book perhaps, and that is an ongoing process.   To be honest its a wee bit scary doing this yet it helps me grow as an artist and as a person.

I have found a couple of easy access printers and have successfully sold a couple of prints now. I have added a page where you can see whats available.  Should any of my paintings catch your eye but you feel are priced beyond your means, I'm happy to discuss terms on the original or look at creating a print for you.  

I have had a couple of images printed with the Goddess in my View poem on the back. You can read the poem on my blog page.   £3 each or 2 for £5.
