Helen L Robertson
Helen graduated in 1987 with Honours in Glass from Edinburgh College of Art. After a year at the Royal College of Art in London she moved to Glenshiel on the west coast of Scotland to live and work as an artist. Helen’s present work sees her shift from working solely with pure pastel to experimenting with mixed media. The paintings begin with washes of watercolour and acrylic inks splattered onto the paper giving a dynamic, expressive feel. Once dry, she uses soft pastel to build up the detail which contrasts with the looser, sketchier background areas. The eye is led into the composition by an arc of detail, for example, an array of shells in the sand, giving focus to the painting. The scenes drift away, giving a dreamlike quality to her work.
