About icklebabe

Hi I'm Helen and I come from a little shire village in the heart of England.
I have painted for a living all my life, everything from ceramics and giant canvases to barge boats.
But when I discovered inks and watercolours something magical happened, I could almost feel the painting coming to life within my hands.
I love things that have a magical charm. Fairies, woodlands, American Indian art, vintage-y style circuses.
Anything that you can imagine are more than first meet the eye. That make you want to take a second look.
That's what I try to paint really. Magic, whimsy, childhood, freedom and happiness.
At least that's the plan.
Oh and I like a good quote too, Dr Seuss is a favourite of mine.
And vintage children's books, Mary Blair is my idol, her work is amazing!
I read her books to my little girl Milly all the time, and sometimes even when she's not around !

I love the idea of creating something unusual that stands out in your home.
And hopefully you'll love my work, welcome to the ickle world of Icklebabe , I hope you stay a while, sometimes we have cake !

    Welcome! I'm a bit of art geek. I love music and coloured inks and watercolour washes and big mugs of Yorkshire tea. My hands are often rainbow coloured.
