Helen Wilkinson grew up in the countryside of Yorkshire where her love of the outdoors first developed. From there she went on to study art and design at both The Bradford school of Arts and the De Montfort university in Leicester. On graduating she went on to work as a designer, first in London and then France.
Now a full-time artist, she lives and works in southern France in an area known inspiringly as both the Alpes Maritimes and the Cote d’Azur. She paints predominantly in oils onto canvas. Her work seeks to capture something of the colour and light of the landscapes around her. Spending time out in the Mountains, Forests and open Plateaus, sketching and searching out forms and compositions, she is continually inspired and challenged to find ways of representing the beauty of the natural world.
