Helen Dowse is one of the S.O.F.A. artists taking part.
Helen and her husband Martin, live on the south coast in Hampshire, close to the Hamble River. It is an area that provides much inspiration for Helen’s paintings.
Educated in Bournemouth and later attaining a BA Hons Degree in Graphic Design at Middlesex University, Helen embarked upon a career in Graphic Design and Illustration. However, it wasn’t long before freelance painting took over her life. Helen’s main passion is painting wildlife in acrylic ink.
Helen strives to capture a ‘moment in time’ otherwise unnoticed. She constantly sees wonderment in so many things around her that it feels like a race to capture those moments onto paper. The challenge is always being able to do the painting justice so that others can share the beauty of that special moment.
Helen’s art has been widely exhibited including the National Exhibition of Wildlife Art, David Shepherd’s Wildlife Artist of the Year Exhibition at the Mall Galleries, The Society of Feline Artists, The Society of Feline Graphic Artists at the Menier Gallery, London as well as numerous local art venues. Her work is held in private collections throughout the UK, Norway, America and Australia.
Helen has tutored extensively over the last 25 years through weekly classes, demonstrations and workshops. She enjoys immense satisfaction in encouraging her students to blossom along the road of artistic discovery and individual aspirations.
