Mixed Media Art

Helen van

42 Elgin Street South, Colborne
Van Poorten Art

Helen is a multi-media artist creating landscapes in watercolours and pastel, as well as jewellery in sterling silver, copper, polymer clay and “your grandmother’s” spoons.

At her studio during the tour you will find vibrant watercolour batiks, painted in much the same way the ancient technique is executed with fabric and dye, but instead using watercolour paint and hot wax on ginwashi rice paper.

A selection of pastel paintings will be available and pet portrait commissions are welcome. There will also be a variety of beautiful jewelry in sterling silver and copper as well as vintage spoon creations for sale.
