Helen Elliott

Helen Elliott is a successful, internationally acknowledged artist. She has a reputation as a talented and inspirational teacher. Asked to leave the art classroom aged thirteen, Helen found a career in science until, as an adult, her desire to paint and create took over and she quit her job to become an artist. She now runs regular ‘Creative Me’ workshops from her studio in Newcastle Emlyn, west Wales, helping students to unlock their creativity, overcome self-doubt, and finally put a paintbrush to canvas. In 2015 she became a fully accredited Golden Artists Paints Inc. artist educator.

Helen’s art, painted in the ‘naïve’ style, features the boats, beaches, villages, dogs and people of west Wales, as well as landscapes from her travels in Europe.

Creative Me, Helen’s first book with Graffeg, features the wisdom and tips that she shares in her workshops. From the philosophy of creativity, and working through self-doubt, to the basics of that first splat of paint on the canvas. It is an exception ‘how-to’ for the would-be painter.

In May 2017 Helen published three colouring books with Graffeg, Beach Life, Dog’s Life and Village Life, each containing twelve drawings of places around Wales. A series of A3 colouring posters featuring drawings from the books have subsequently been released, providing the perfect creative momento of favourite west Wales hotspots.

Helen made her children’s book debut in March 2018, producing the illustrations for Paradise Found written by John Milton.
