“Helen James was born and raised in Preston, England, emigrated to Canada in 1983, settling in Cornwall, Ontario. As a child, Helen found immense pleasure in painting and drawing. This pastime has been revived during recent years as she has had more time to devote to studying and pursuing visual arts.
Helen’s work is representational and she works chiefly with oils and watercolour, although she has experimented with pastels, pencil, photography and pen and ink. Helen is a self-taught artist who has learned much through studying the work of painters of the past.”
