Sutton based artist and printmaker, Helen Percival has been interested in art for as long as she can remember. Originally a full-time IT executive, Helen found time in her career to pursue her love of art and design, achieving a web design certification and attending short courses at Central Saint Martin’s before going on to achieve a BTEC in art & design at the college.
Helen works in a variety of media and has recently created a series of monoprints and pen & ink sketches. Inspired by her pets, a central theme of her latest work is cats and she has produced a number of pieces based on this topic. She also produces abstract monoprints and mixed media pieces, works in pastel, watercolour and acrylic and block prints her own designs onto fabric using lino.
As well as creating pieces for friends and family, she sells her pen & ink sketches through a local framer and has just completed 4 pieces in acrylic that now hang in an office based in London.
