Hélène Howse was born in St. Lô, France in 1944. When she finally married Helen came to live in Britain in 1963, and has since lived in Swindon.
Helen stated that she has "Always fascinated by the magic of colours, I studied art in France but painting became a passion that changed my life in many ways in 1995 after a period of private tuition from a gifted artist, an ex-Head of Art and Design with Swindon College. I have since held several solo exhibitions both in France and England."
Helen uses watercolours, enhanced with pastels; these vibrant paintings are all mounted in white mounts.
Helen also regularly holds exhibitions and 'open studio days' at her home in Swindon.
