About the artist

Hi, my name is Helen and I'm the artist here at HelenJaneCreative.co.uk. I live in the West Midlands area, half an hour from Shakespeare's birthplace. My speciality is creating Illustrated Alphabet Names.

I've always been creative in some manner or other and at school I was greatly inspired by my art teacher, who eventually left teaching to become a full time artist. I was interested in painting and drawing and I was encouraged to take my art further, which eventually led me to pursue a career in graphic design.

I have a passion for art and creativity, and love sitting down with a pencil or a brush in my hand.

Over the years, I have experimented with different mediums and techniques, from pastels to inks, from pencil to water colours. I've always had a soft spot for colour pencils, right from my first set of Caran D'Ache when I was in college. Then, in more recent years, I decided to invest in a newer set, and fell in love with Faber-Castell Polychromos pencils, which are a joy to work with and blend beautifully on the page.

I also use graphic design applications in my day job, and my "illustrated Names" came about when I decided to try marrying the hand drawn with the digital. The result is a wonderfully flexible way to create almost any name.

Please get in touch if you want to order, and thanks for coming to visit!
