"For as long as she’s been an artist, Helen Wells has been fascinated by the patterns and motifs that exist in nature. From fossils and feathers to snowflakes and seashells, nature’s bounty is Helen’s muse and she incorporates its patterns into her ink and watercolour works with delicate precision. Helen won the Winsor and Newton Watercolour Revolution competition in 2014. She has since exhibited around the UK and her works can be found in private collections worldwide."
INSIDE ARTISTS MAGAZINE (ISSUE 2 2015)
"Based on the Southcoast of England, the water is a constant presence and source of inspiration for mixed media artist, Helen Wells, who takes elements from nature and blends them into beautifully intricate abstract works. Combining mediums such as ink and watercolour on paint on paper, Wells works instinctively and intuitively, finding rhythms in her process while she paints."
SUSSEX LIFE MAGAZINE (MARCH 2016)
"Swathes of her paintings are fanned across a floor, on their way to buyers who have come across her work online and in restaurants and galleries. “The move to the seaside has had a noticeable impact on my work, I think. I often start the day walking on the beach looking for interesting patterns, textures and lines and to me, that’s really coming out in my painting.”
