The Early Years

Helen Hiles

I am the Teacher of ”Helen’s Art Class” - I know the clue is in the title! My childhood memories are filled with sitting around the dining table with my sisters, with pots of water, lots of paper and paint, churning out masterpieces (Mum said they were brilliant and she never lied) and I’ve been painting ever since.

A Bit More About Me

I’ve had several solo exhibitions and sold work both here and abroad. In the past my paintings were mainly Botanical of which I received various awards from the Royal Horticultural Society. However my paintings are now very different, I no longer confine myself to a specific subject  instead “If I Love it I Paint It”

Me as Teacher

I’ve been teaching now for lots of years and I love it. I get a buzz from seeing my students become Artists. My Classes are quite relaxed and fun and full of wonderfully nice people - it’s not work - it’s like hanging out with friends - but I do still like to challenge them artistically (It’s good for them!)

Helen Hiles - My Paintings

I thought you might like to see some photos of my Art Work. I use mainly Acrylic and sometimes Oil and usually on Canvas - Most of my paintings are quite large, but I’m beginning to think about using smaller canvases. I usually use a brush, but sometimes just my fingers (nice and messy) - Enjoy

Buddy And Charlie

This is my favourite painting

This is my favourite painting of mine and I couldn’t resist giving it a special place. It made me smile when I was painting it and it still makes me smile 😊
