Helen Hanson – Landscape in Ink & Coloured Pencil

  • Yorkshire-born, Lancashire-bred so says she can pass as a northerner despite living in the far south!
  • taught languages for about 17 years before becoming an artist and printmaker, maintaining a teacher’s approach to planning, presentation and encouragement
  • prefers coloured pencil and also working in ink in a creative way
  • interestingly, advocates an approach as printmaker rather than painter, using line + soft colour in a way that is reminiscent of etching and aquatint to teach landscape as subject matter with appropriate plants in context.
An effective ‘bridge’ between various discrete art disciplines. We think the way that larger scenes can be brought to life employing some of the influences from both printmaking and botanical illustration, can satisfy the desires of both creative and scientific appetites. Helen has a unique approach that has evolved from her teaching and professional work.
