Helen was born in London but grew up in the heart of Wales. She studied Fine Art at Coventry and a master of Printmaking at Chelsea School of Art. After two print residencies she became a master editioner for artist Brenda Hartill. Ten years ago she set up 'Bodenpress' printmaking studio for intaglio and relief techniques. There are courses and print sessions for artists to use the facilities with assistance.
My work considers the space and shapes created by the light and texture that we see in everyday life.
“Different processes create a variety of mark making and laying on of colour. The creation of a print is about surface and movement of hands across the plate. Ideas develop through the stages of timed intervals.”
