Helen Gallaway is a full-time, self-taught artist that has been producing art in different media since her childhood.
Now focusing on oil painting, Helen spent many years making realistic pencil, ink and pastel drawings. Having spent so years dedicated to technique, she felt the need to switch gears and allow her art to come more from the heart and brave being looser and less constrained by limits of trying to achieve a perfect realistic image.
Her paintings are alive with color and vibrancy and she allows whatever subject matter is inspiring to draw her more and more into the world of oil painting.
Always a person wanting to learn more, Helen participates regularly in oil painting workshops, and classes whenever possible.
Helen paints almost daily and is inspired by nature, animals and life. She splits her time with art and yoga and teaches classes in both.
