Helen Brown is a woodcut printmaker based in Sussex, she also teaches printmaking, mainly at BIP Art Brighton.
Most of her work is from the South Downs, as this is her home and a great love.
Helen Brown draws directly from the landscape onto wooden blocks, she then carves into the blocks and prints from them.
All of her work is handmade and each one of my pieces is given individual life though chine colle (paper overlay) and hand colouring, just as the mood of a scene shifts with light, time and experience.
Helen Brown spends time in the places her work depicts, returning to them so her prints are imbued with the emotion of place.
Working outdoors enables her to connect with the spirit of the place, capturing the line and fluidity of scenes and localities.
Helen Brown's prints are exhibited in London and throughout the South East.
