‘Words inspire my paintings.
Words from poems, stories and songs.
Words from friends or complete strangers.
Words from me…’
Helen Taylor’s art is inspired by poetry, song and the ‘collector’ of the exotic and beautiful.
The Ornithologist and the Lepidopterist hunger for that which is unique. They strive to capture beauty and preserve it in museum drawers and bell jars. Life and Death is on display for all eternity.
Helen works with Watercolour on Fabriano Artistico Hotpress Art Paper.
All paintings can be conservation framed on request.
Helen is an award winning Children’s Book Illustrator (A Booming in the Night, New Zealand Post Book Awards Children and Young Adults 2006) and twice short-listed for the Russell Clark (LIANZA) award for illustration.
Helen has work in private collections throughout New Zealand and overseas.
