turnerpic.JPG (11286 bytes) Helen was born in Prestwick in 1937. When she left school she joined the design studios of James Templeton and attended Glasgow School of Art in the evenings from 1952 to 1960 - studying drawing, still life and portraiture under Trevor Mackinson and William Gallagher. Continuing her career she became a documented designer in Aubusson and Beauvais – travelling extensively throughout the world. Helen’s designs can be seen in the Waldorf Astoria, the Turnberry Hotel and the San Francisco Opera House. She eventually gave up her design work to become a full-time painter. She is a member of the Royal Glasgow Institute and the Glasgow Society of Women Artists and exhibits regularly in Scotland as well as at The Richmond Hill Gallery and Thompson’s Gallery in London. She has had many exhibitions – notably at the John D. Kelly Gallery in Glasgow and the Contemporary Fine Arts Gallery, Eton. Helen won the East Linton Award and was commended in the Soroptomists Fine Art Award in 1992. Her work is in the corporate collections –among many others - of Robert Fleming Holdings, Dunedin Fund Managers and the TSB
