Helen Elliott, an internationally recognised British Naive Artist, was born in Hull and has been painting since 1970. She is a professional member of the Association of British Naïve Artists. Her instantly recognisable paintings describe the colourful and sometimes mischievous life of the villages and peoples of West Wales where she lives and of places in France where she holidays and exhibits. Helen is represented by local, national and international galleries, including The Agora Gallery New York and The Museum of Naïve Art in Paris. Her paintings have been exhibited and purchased for internal collections in the USA, the Middle East and Europe. As well as group shows throughout Wales and the UK in 2010 she has exhibited in Poland, Germany, Denmark and in France, at Europe’s premier Naïve art exhibition, where she was the only UK artist selected to represent Britain. She is an elected member of the prestigious reference book ‘Who’s Who in British Art’ (2010 edition). She is currently preparing for a three month solo exhibition at the International Museum of Naïve Art in Paris in autumn 2011.
