Helen Purdie

Whether painting or drawing, I enjoy exploring colour, tone, form and the use of line, influenced directly by my interactions with the world around me.

I am a Sheffield-based artist and self-taught. I did not engage with my artistic self for nearly twenty years after leaving school. However, in 2008 I realised that I needed to live my life as the artist I knew myself to be within. I recognised that I would have to end my career in the National Health Service to commit to this. This was even before I had found the confidence to pick up my paint brushes again. Once I did so, my paintings and drawings emerged and continue to develop.

Within a year I had held a very fulfilling exhibition with a surgical colleague. By 2011 I was pursuing my art practice full-time. My first solo exhibition in a gallery was held in 2013. I have continued to exhibit individually and in group shows since. My practice is diverse in expression but with a continuity in purpose.
