Helen Woodford Illustration

For West Bridgford based artist Helen Woodford, art is all about life’s little details. “My  work ranges from detailed observational drawings to architectural  studies, bespoke wedding stationary and gifts and art work for children.  I use photographs and sketches as a starting point, and historical  research if applicable. I have a degree in Art History so I’m always  interested in the background to my subjects.”

Working from her studio at home in Musters Road,  Helen’s art is predominantly created with pen and watercolour.  “I  love the variety of tones and colours that can be achieved in the  paint. A fine pen gives me the crisp quality that characterises my  drawings.”  Helen  says her designs can then be transferred to digital format and  manipulated for different purposes, such as content for a website or  stationary for a special event.
Nothing  brings Helen more joy than capturing the essence of a day, a moment, a  life or a memory. Many of her bespoke pieces occupy pride of place on  mantlepieces and walls across the country.  “I  feel very honoured that people choose to put my artwork up in their homes and that I have been given an insight into their lives in order to  create something they will love.”A  qualified art teacher, Helen also offers private classes and workshops  to suit specific media, ages and abilites. She is a regular stallholder  at the monthly Melton Road Market. You can browse Helen’s portfolio,  purchase art, discuss commissions, and children can enjoy taking part in  fun art activities.
