HELEN DARE

Abstract Artist

Helen started her are career in the early '70's as a metal sculptor using oxyacetylene welding equipment making bird life sculptures in mild steel. She exhibited and sold widely in Northern England.

Helen opened a private gallery in Northamptonshire in '79 selling her own work as well as exhibiting many other artists.

After a move to Lincolnshire in '85 her focus moved towards life study using live models, modelling in clay and casting in bronze.

It was at this time that she also began painting with watercolour, oil, acrylic and mixed media. Her projects included still life, figurative and abstract works, the latter of which has now become her focus. 

Helen's eye catching artwork has featured in many galleries and exhibitions within the UK. These include The Alderley Gallery - Cheshire, The Thornthwaite Gallery - Keswick, as well as locally with Welland Valley Art Society Exhibitions and The Rob Fogel Gallery, Stamford.
