Helen creates limited edition, handmade linocuts from her studio at the end of her garden. Her designs evolve from observational drawings and photos from trips out in the countryside and along the coastline. She looks for textures in the landscape and enjoys devising ways to render them through linocut. She uses the ‘reduction method’ where one piece of lino is used for the entire print and the picture is built up through layers of ink, with more lino being carved away between each layer. She makes images that celebrate both the beauty of the place and also the natural qualities of linocut.

Helen is a member of the Suffolk Craft Society and has her designs published as greetings cards by Green Pebble.
