Local artist Helen Treuel
Helen loves exploring colour and works predominantly with inks and watercolours.
Drawn from her affinity to the ocean from where she creates her work Helen takes you into a world of aquatic sublimeness. Helen loves exploring colour and works predominantly with inks and watercolours. Proximity to the sea has significantly influenced the pieces she creates and the way in which she creates them. This is evident in the fluidity of her designs. She never quite knows how a piece will turn out when she first begins, tending to let the artwork lead the way... merging colours and shapes as they reveal themselves in the process. Helen draws inspiration from music, the environment and other artists. Glass sculptor Dale Chihuly has become a favourite. Helen often draws on his stunning use of colour for inspiration for her own pieces.
