Helen A Taylor
Helen is a printmaker working in woodcut and watercolour painting. She explores the natural world of flora, the incredible colours and shapes and sheer diversity of growing things. Plants which are bred and live in ‘captivity’; a possible future for many plant species, and for our experience of them.
She is inspired by well-known botanical and architectural ‘meeting’ places such as Kew Gardens, where people and plants intersect. Helen’s work underlines the contrast of the human manufactured domain of hard edges and straight lines with the abundance and freedom of shape, form and colour of the natural world. Helen has a first class degree in Fine Art, and a Master’s degree in printmaking and works from her home studio in Milton Keynes.
She has recently had works accepted into exhibitions in London and overseas, including in 2020/21 The Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolour, Society Botanical Artists, Woolwich Contemporary Print Fair and The Society of Women Artists. She has work in private collections in the UK, China and the US. She is a member of The Printmakers Council.
