Having published a few unique greeting card designs, it did not take long for individuals to request bespoke and very personal commissions. Armed with a sense of humour, an eye for detail and a flair for watercolour and ink, Helena's compositions and artwork evolved.
Each have been based on the recipients hobbies, interests, special events, cars, motorbikes, vehicles, careers, pets, cats, dogs, even a tortoise! Sketched first with the main subjects and background to suit. The design is then made permanent with ink. Colour is applied using watercolour pencils and a paint brush, allowing Helena to achieve such fabulous colourful detail.
Recently, Helena has added another string to her bow; fine art commissions using acrylic paints on natural slate or canvas.
So, how about treating yourself, family or friends? These make such excellent gifts for Christmas, Birthdays, Weddings or any other special occasion.
For both fine art acrylic or watercolour and ink commissions, prices range from £40 to £300 based on time taken and size of works. Once a price is agreed, this price is guaranteed not to change. Below are a number of examples of these delightful paintings:
Commissions are generally based on photographs provided by the customer, though Helena is known to conduct her own research particularly when challenged with painting specific vehicles and/or scenes. For further details, please contact Helena.
