Welcome to Heartworks by Helen

Paintings in acrylics and oils

My Artistic Creations

Let me introduce myself.

I’ve always had an interest in art, and tried my hand at painting many times over the decades.  In January 2017 after doing a Bob Ross tutorial, it became my passion and replaced all my other interests and hobbies.  Catching the light on a subject, and the way it affects the colours when  combined with shadows intrigues me and I need to capture it.

I love the blendability and potential to realism that oil painting gives me, so I do several every year in oil.   But I Also enjoy painting in acrylics, and probably most of my work ends up being in acrylic.   There are many subjects I yet want to delve into painting, but fruit, Foliage, landscapes and animals have been my focus thus far.

I have had two shows at the Center gallery at Center for Creative arts in Grande Prairie where I live, one solo in 2019 called a Dance of Light, and another shared with Agnes McDonald in 2022 at the same gallery as well as collaborative shows with the art Guild in several places.

Most recently, as a member of the Peace River Chapter of the Canadian Federation of Artists,  I was part of a show at the Beaverlodge Cultural Center where my painting won second place, and I've been thrilled to be juried into other Federation shows, the next one to be in their gallery in Vancouver.


I am also one of the 25  artists that took part in the West Fine Arts show in Langley BC in August 2023, in a show to benefit the Langley Hospice Society.
