About the Artist
Helen Davies (b. 1993) born in Manchester, is a visual artist based in the North West.
Throughout her life, Helen has always been fascinated with drawing, specifically using pencils and paper to create what her eyes see in the world. Her artwork has always depicted people, and the interest cultivated during her time studying at Liverpool School of Art and Design, when she began to explore the human form and the details visible upon skin.
She found her passion for creating realistic references of the human body, using graphite powder and pastels, to represent the honest beauty and encourage a feeling of confidence. Whilst the details within her work are soft, Helen often includes gold leaf to direct a feeling of strength and value, due to the desire for her work to exude the strength and value that the human form holds.
Helen was selected as the winner of the Greater Manchester Arts Prize in 2017, and has since exhibited across the North West.
Her works are held in private collections across Europe.
