Helen Van Poorten
Helen is a multi-media artist creating landscapes in watercolours and pastel, as well as jewellery in sterling silver, copper, 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 also be available and pet portrait commissions are welcome.
Also on display and for sale will be a variety of beautiful jewellery in sterling silver and copper as well as vintage spoon creations.
