Helen Mortimer is a SIlk Painter living and working from her studio in West Berkshire. Having studied for a Fine Art degree in the late 1980's, she discovered silk painting nearly 20 years ago whilst doing a PGCE at her local college.
Her paintings are created on silk and are inspired by travels abroad, showing a response to architecture in the natural environment. Colour, line and composition play an important role in these paintings, which develop from drawings of townscapes and cityscapes.
Helen is currently working on a range of hand-painted silk scarves inspired by her earlier abstract, freehand works. Her work is exhibited at both the West Berkshire & Hampshire Open Studios schemes, with the cards and scarves selling at local Crafts Fairs.
