Helen Forrest is an artist based in North East Scotland. Helen has always painted and paints from the heart. For her painting is like a visual diary. Her work is a result of her individual quirks, techniques and way of seeing things. Her deep love of life and her reflective nature shines through in her work.

Helen likes her paintings to leave room for the imagination. Her figures are wistful, they turn away from you, they look to something outside your range of vision, or they move towards an unknown destination. There is something they are not telling you and unavoidably you start to make up your own story.

Vibrant colour, simple form and a creative use of texture are woven together to give Helen’s paintings their unique quality.
