Helen Millar

Helen graduated with a BA (Hons) Degree in Printed Textile Design at Leicester Polytechnic in 1983 and then worked in London for G.P.J. Baker and Sanderson designing textiles for soft furnishings and wallpapers for many years.

After moving to rural Leicestershire to raise her family she has been concentrating on developing her work as a watercolour artist .Watercolour as a medium with its clarity and gentle merging of colour has an unpredictability which she finds both challenging and exciting. Helen is inspired by nature and its seasons and always paints from life. Working from her home studio in Twyford her still lives often incorporate objects found on daily walking trips such as leaves, feathers, flowers, branches, pebbles and nests. Having worked as a textile designer, symmetry, colour, formality and repetition are part of the design process which continues to be reflected in her work today.

Helens work is an attempt to simply capture the natural beauty that nature provides.
