Helen Elphinstone-King

Helen is a qualified Graphic Designer & Web Developer..She joined the Watercolour Society so that she may learn correct techniques to include Watercolours to her pen & ink drawings ..instead became addicted to the medium all by itself..

Helen has attended many quality workshops with well known & highly respected Watercolourists, both within CCWS & outside  ..such as Malcolm Beattie, Jacky Pearson, Guy Troughton, Rob Candy, Barry & Lucy McCann, Hermann Pekel…&  a list so long ..

Her “idols” of watercolour are Robert Wade OAM & Jack McDonogh, both of whom she had  studied and admired for many years. She was fortunate enough to attend a long intensive workshop with Robert Wade OAM ..& he continues to greatly influence her work

Helen regularly exhibits her Art and has sold many of her works. She also takes orders for commissions for a variety of tastes. Helen lives on the shores of beautiful Lake Macquarie, hence her love of marine subjects ..and is also a member of the Society of Artists , Newcastle Art Society & Hunter Arts Network.
