Helen Clifford

I find inspiration in the patterns, textures and colours of the natural world. The aim of my work is to share my delight in the beauty to be found in the small details all around us - in trees, plants, flowers and roots, rock, stone and water. I also enjoy working on animal subjects, trying to convey their individual personalities.

Coloured pencil is my favourite medium. It allows me to capture my subject directly onto paper with directness and simplicity, enabling me to concentrate on the image rather than the technique.

For many years I showed and sold my work at the annual MIWAS wildlife art exhibition, and now exhibit with Southern Nature. I also exhibit regularly at a number of venues local to my Hampshire home. In 2015 I was thrilled to have two graphite drawings accepted for the Society of Graphic Fine Art DRAW 15 exhibition.
