Studied Art and Design at Accrington and Rossendale College way back in the mid eighties.
From Accrington I went on to Blackpool and the Fylde College to study and graduate in Graphic Design.
Worked in design and marketing ever since, whilst continuing to further my skills in fine art.
Undertaken many art courses including graduating with distinction from London Art College in Botanical Illustration, a higher pass for my studies with the Society of Botanical Artist on their Diploma Course and
undertook a Drawing Skills course with the Open College of Arts.
An avid sketcher (especially when on holiday in warmer climates!) and enjoy sketching trips with the Lancashire Urban Sketchers.
Now working on a variety of commission work for various UK and overseas clients and subjects include; animals, wildlife, landscapes and botanical art. The images I create are reproduced by high profile wall art and wallcoverings manufacturers for commercial on-line retailers, greeting card publishers and other merchandise.
Some of my designs are available at VIDA, an on-line clothing retailer. Visit http://www.shopvida.com/collections/voices/helen-dickson
