Helen Rhodes is an award winning Leicestershire artist who enjoys international success with her original artwork attracting an ever growing number of collectors. A graduate of Loughborough College of Art & Design, Helen holds a First Class Degree in Textiles.
Her unique timeless style combines naive composition with intensely rich jewel like colours, textures and patterns. The richness of her mixed media work is achieved through the layering of paint with extra depth given by a final layer of varnish. Her paintings often have torn edges hinting that each image is a fragment of a larger painting giving an element of preciousness to each piece.
Helen says, "My work is a real mixture of imagination and real life observations. I am inspired by the quirky things I notice in nature".
