Welcome to the Studio
Fibre art and Textiles, Photography, Oil Paintings and Ceramics by
Helen Suzanne is an artist originally from Yorkshire who has lived and worked in the highlands and islands of Scotland for over 15 years, taking her inspiration from the wilderness environments of shore and moorland.
Primarily Helen works in Oils but over the last 7 years has developed a keen interest in the medium of textile. Small landscape abstractions allow her to capture the colours and textures of the places she studies and, keen to share these original pieces, they are available as original cards. Exotic gift tags also represent the landscape observations, as do the beautifully crafted hand-dyed and felted silk/merino wool scarves.
Photography is also something which Helen creates with, seeking out light and shadow, pulling out forms and texture that capture the essence of a time and place. Mostly in B&W these works are available as prints or cards.
Since moving from the islands to the mainland Helen's interest in ceramics has been revived and she is currently working on a series of new pieces inspired by the native birch woodland in the North East of Scotland. These pieces will be available soon.
Helen usually works with Oil paint as shown here, though she has also worked in other mediums to commission for interior decorators of commercial properties as well as private individuals.
Oil Paintings by
Helen came to textiles as a way of "loosening up" her artwork whilst being free to explore the elements of colour and texture in a different medium from paint. This adventure is on going and continues to inspire her.
