Helen Mahood

Helen MahoodFrom an early age I loved drawing and painting and wanted to be an artist.  After a very brief spell teaching art, I was able to train and qualify as a medical illustrator. That very interesting career and a move to London led me into the fast paced world of commercial work. Eventually I went freelance and did a wide range of work which included illustrations, cartooning and set design visuals.
Now I have returned to my first love of painting. I am inspired by the wonderful landscape of Ireland - and Cornwall, where I now live. I love to watch waves and observe the incredible ever changing light over the landscape. I try to capture a moment of beauty often painting from memory, so that I am not restrained by too much detail.
I became a member of Taking Space in 2018.
