Helen Bartholomew

Helen Rosanne Bartholomew, was born in Indiana, USA in 1962, her mother's maiden name was Tebbutt. Since childhood, Helen has had a strong interest in colour, shape, line and form and enjoyed drawing and painting but her serious interest in painting began in 1996, when she started private tutelage with Kenneth Back (1944-2002), with whom she studied until his death, and who taught her the tradition of the British School of painting but encouraged his students to follow their own unique path thus maintaining their integrity and individuality. Helen then studied at University of East Anglia followed by private tuition from Charlotte Stewart [q.v.]. Helen works in oil, graphite and occasionally collage and is regularly changing and developing and therefore quite diverse, her work can range from figurative to abstract, from traditional to the bizarre. A member and exhibitor at the Suffolk Art Club and has also exhibited at Graham & Oldham’s Gallery, Ipswich; Cinema Gallery, Aldeburgh, Suffolk; the Society of Women Artists, Mall Galleries, London; Ferini Art Gallery, Pakefield, Lowestoft; Halesworth Summer Exhibition; Pond Gallery, Snape Maltings, Suffolk; Artisans East, Peter Pears, Aldeburgh and regularly at the New English Art Club, London and John Russell Gallery, Ipswich.
