The Work of Helen Ansell

Dear Gentle Readers,

May I introduce you to the work of Helen Ansell? Her work is immediately recognizable by her vivid use of color and strong Australian influence. Her work is both primitive and complex, dramatic and simple, all at the same time. 

I was drawn to her work because it reminded me so much of the art pieces by our own Parker Kaufman. Bold and geometric, combined with detailed and delicate. Fearless mixes of color and shape and stroke that bring the canvas to life.

Australian-born Helen Ansell loves to paint wildflowers. She has had a affinity for wildflowers since she was a little girl helping her father collect wildflower seeds and growing them in a remote Aboriginal community outside of Wiluna, Australia.

Some of her wildflower paintings have been translated in textile designs. On her Facebook Page at https://www.facebook.com/helenansellart Helen shows us her process of turning photos of the natural fauna of her country into works of art. 

If the art of this amazing young woman has sparked your curiosity at all, please follow the links to learn more about her and how she creates her beautiful work.


None of these photos are mine. I claim nothing here. They came from the links above.
