About

Hello there, I’m Helen…

I am an artist, editor and a tutor too

Let’s face it, we could all do with a bit of happy inspiration right now, so I’ve put together this art mag site to highlight some of the brilliant free art resources out there that you can use at home.

I’m going to be adding new content over the coming days and weeks including projects from my own studio so watch this space.

I’ll try to find something for everyone from tots to teens and grown-ups too. And, because art is for all, there will be plenty we can all do together. 

Don’t forget to share what you make with the We Can Make This community on facebook. Part of the joy of art is the exhibition – we love a bit of show and tell.

Thank you for making, thank you for sharing – let’s have some fun.

A quick bit of blurb for those who don’t know me:

• I originally trained as an illustrator then went back to college to study contemporary portraiture later on.

• My career has been in publishing, in children’s magazines and books, craft books and interiors magazines. I am now a freelance writer and editor.

• I also teach children’s workshops and corporate creative days, plus I help with events and art things with the National Trust. You can see some of things I have made with them on the gallery page.

• I am a practising artist and, if you want to see what I’m up to in my own studio, pop over to my website.
