Hello there, welcome to the online gallery of Welsh artist Helen Frost Rich.
Helen has long been fascinated by the natural world, and the challenges of capturing light, form and texture in paint. She loves to paint birds, and is also inspired by mythology and folklore, enchantment and dream.
As well as painting and sculpting, Helen is also a professional mask-maker, so masks often feature in her artwork, beguiling and enticing the viewer into joining the eternal masquerade.
Helen lives in South Wales, and when she is not making masks or painting, she loves to walk along the shore of the Severn Estuary, or visit local open spaces and woodland groves, and play the bagpipes. No birds, woodland creatures or mythological folk have ever been harmed by her rendition of ‘Sleep Dearie Sleep’ as far as she has been able to tell.
