The Perky Painter

The Perky Painter is the passion and heart of Artist Helen Gibson. Helen crafts beautifully vibrant acrylic paintings, inspired by looking and seeing beyond the norm into a world of colour, texture and personality. Using acrylic paint in bold, energetic applications of pure colour, Helen brings her subjects to life on the canvas in an uplifting explosion of hues. Helen draws inspiration from the natural world, the British Countryside and her love of animals.

The pleasure enjoyed when painting is unmistakable in Helen’s cheerful, contemporary paintings.

The Perky Painter also brings back her popular Fruinimal (fruit-animal) characters to Horsforth Walk of Art along with some new pun-animal faces! These adorable illustrations combine a simplified animal form with a familiar theme to become humorous characters, loved by kids, and big kids alike!
