HELEN FAIRWEATHER ART - Creating countryside art filled with sunshine and happiness!

Hello, I'm Helen Fairweather, a mixed media artist painting and creating original art in my own unique style that is filled with sunshine and happiness! Through my art it is my mission to help make people happy!
My studio isn based in the beautiful and tranquil English county of Buckinghamshire, where I live with my husband and our son.
Living in such a picturesque part of the world, my artistic inspiration comes from the breathtaking British countryside and coast, and of course the tiny villages, about which I am passionate.
At every opportunity, I love to go exploring with my family (as well as my trusty camera and sketchbook), in search of new subjects, ideas and inspirations for my art.
At the same time, a lot of my my work is commissioned by clients who would like bespoke paintings of their pets, homes, and special places. I love working with people as every painting is so different, which keeps things fresh and exciting for me as an artist - I never know quite what I will be asked to paint next!
I use watercolours and gouache to create my colourful paintings, and often explore my ideas further by sewing onto my art using textiles to create an appliqué effect, as well as using beading, and embroidery. In recent months I have also begun painting my own patterns and designs onto fabrics, which I then sew into some of my work.
All of my work is sewn by hand, as it makes me feel so much closer to my art than a machine ever could; this aspect is very important to me as an artist. As a result, the finished piece of art is undoubtedly more natural and more personal.
I also create pretty, three dimensional wooden cottages and beach huts to compliment my painted designs too. These little models are entirely hand painted, and have beautiful fabric roofs.
