Paintings and Limited Edition Prints by Helen Rawlings
Welcome to my website,
I am an artist currently living and working in Sussex finding most of my inspiration from nature. I particularly enjoy painting animals and birds, also accepting commissions for animal portraits
Although my subject matter may be around a similar theme my method of work is very varied, from egg tempura icons to large bold acrylics as well as different hand printing techniques.
'Age & Wisdom' Acrylic on Canvas £900
Now also as a Framed Print on Canvas £95
A bit about myself:
After having completed an Illustration course at Harrow School of Art (University of Westminster) I was asked to paint a portrait of a friend’s horse and things sort of snowballed from there. Working almost exclusively in watercolour I completed many commissions and exhibited at various country fairs in and around Kent where I lived at the time, my big annual event being the Kent County Show. I produced some limited edition prints of gun dogs and horses which you can see on a page on this site… yes I still have some left but they were large editions and are priced accordingly.
Too many adventures to recount on this page but in a nutshell; I stopped painting for a living, joined the police, moved to Brighton, got married (explains why some of my older work is signed in my maiden name, Bocking), retired, got a degree in theology and ordained as a self supporting minister in the Church of England, started painting for a living again.
