Announcement   Original Artwork by Helena Kuttner-Giasson (HK Giasson)

Give the nooks in your home a splash of interest with original-concept, one-of-a-kind acrylic palette knife paintings, hand trimmed in metallic paint with a slightly irregular edge to give it that hand-crafted appeal. Ready to hang without the expense of a frame, yet versatile enough to give the appearance of a metallic liner if you do wish to frame them.
I also create petite 4 x 6 mixed media paintings of flowers, and landscapes! These include a custom frame matched to complement the character of each piece. Hand deckled paper is floated on the mat, and protected by clear acrylic and spacers. Each work is papered and wired for hanging. Start your collection today!

About

"Fine Art For Small Spaces" ™

Why not paint small, and arrange several on a wall, or give that impact to a neglected corner of a room? Accessible and affordable art is what I am all about.
My artwork has been there from the beginning, as a child, sketches in crayon adorned our walls....after art school, I designed custom patterns for mirror and glass etchings. When left to my own devices, they always had flowers and animals throughout. After technology took over the flat glass decor market, I felt compelled to strike out in a new artistic direction.
Painting straight from the heart to the hand, my acrylic palette knife paintings express the energy I feel every time I am outdoors. The western states have left me with a lasting impression of wide open skies, moody, mysterious and sometimes towering landscapes. Living in Michigan provides access to the large lakes, full of their own energy and meditative charge.
Another passion is my garden flowers. So fragile and fleeting, they remind us that life is brief yet beautiful. Each one is individually hand painted in watercolor or color pencil, embellished with just the right amount of pen and ink work, then I hand deckle each piece and select matboard to float the work upon, adding another level to each design. I custom frame, wire, and paper the back side to further enhance the work, and acrylic is used instead of glass to ensure safety and a safe arrival into your home. All the materials are archival, and will ensure many decades of enjoyment.

    I have always been fascinated by nature and the creatures that inhabit our world. As an artist, I am drawn to express myself on paper, and as an animal welfare advocate, to use money from the sale of art to give back to that which inspires me.

Last updated on June 14, 2012
I have always been fascinated by nature, and how making marks on paper or canvas can actually create images that recall moments from our surroundings. Some items are embellished by hand, some made by me, some are repurposed and embellished. The artwork always serves a purpose greater than itself because a part of all the sales go toward a local animal rescue and spay/neuter clinic to help them out.
