Helen Bailey, Colored Pencil Artist
Art has appealed to me since childhood and drawing horses is how I started. When I found colored pencil, I found a medium that did everything I wanted – I could express the joy, challenge, and excitement I felt looking at a beautiful horse or other animal. I have the control with colored pencil that allows me to do photo realistic artwork which brings the horse to life on the page. I have tried landscapes and other art forms but nothing is as satisfying to me as portraying animals in their true spirit.
