Helen Robinson


...... a strong sense of light, mystery and drama.

Helen's atmospheric oil paintings are inspired by her love of travel and the sea.

Helen says that having obtained an Honours degree in Art History in 2013, she was drawn mostly to landscape artists who painted light; for example the
17th century Dutch landscape painters; the 'unfinished works' of William Turner; and contemporary artists such as Norman Ackroyd and Fred Cuming.

Helen's recent paintings are contemporary sea and cloudscapes which have an immensely strong sense of light, mystery and drama. Memories and photographs of travel and sailing experiences provide the starting point for her work which evolve towards abstraction. She focuses on the way light interacts with sky, earth and water - both vast expanses of sea and intricate salt marshes, with their detailed patterns of tidal water channels. Colour, tonal blending and expressive brush marks convey different moods and weather, calm and stormy.

Helen has exhibits regularly in London, including at the Mall Galleries as part of ING Discerning Eye, the Camden Image Gallery, the Strand Gallery and The Crypt Hall, St Marylebone Parish Church.
