helen prudames [me me me]
A love of art since childhood, a superb teacher at school (thank goodness for you, L.V. Smith) and Art College many years later has given me techniques and knowledge that I have been squirreling away for decades.
Now I find myself washed up on the shores of family life ['washed up' in the nicest and most positive possible way - it’s as if I have recently escaped a relentless whirlpool of lost PE kits, nits and teenage hormones]. I have a fresh interest in myself and my painting, an interest I’m not sure I have ever had before.
My influences are legion - first growing up in Yorkshire and now living in Cornwall, I have absorbed the beauty of two of the most incredible parts of the country. Add this to my love of Expressionism and colour and the result is my abstract landscapes.
