Helen Baines b.1963
Born in 1963 in Llai near Wrexham, Helen now lives in Snowdonia. She takes inspiration from the immediate mountainous landscape surrounding her home, working almost entirely outdoors during the summer months. Scratching through layers of pastel encourages a textural finish to her work which she find very pleasing. Continuing and developing these ideas in the studio enables her to introduce acrylics and to also work on a larger scale.
