A bit about the artist...
Derbyshire-born painter Helen Perkins is an exhibiting artist, specialising in portraits.
She is self taught, with much valuable input from established Royal Portrait Society painters, along with short-course training at the London Atelier of Representational Art, and the guidance of many wonderful painters, which she met while living in London and the Lake District.
Her portrait work has been selected for exhibition by the Royal British Artists and the Royal Society of Portrait Painters, as well the Society of Women Artists.
You can commission a portrait or painting by contacting Helen direct, via email, at firstname.lastname@example.org. She is happy to travel to sitters.
