Bearsted based artist Helen Alexander-Bristow, began illustrating as a way to combat anxiety
and depression. She had always had a passion for illustration and her illustrative skills are
Helen loves the natural world and takes her inspiration from her explorations of the countryside
and the personality of cats, who you can see pictured throughout her artwork.
Helen’s artwork creation especially for the Art of Kent auction is based around her favourite
Kent garden, Sissinghurst Castle Gardens. Helen wanted to focus her artwork on the theme
of plants meet architecture and has produced a wonderful triptych in acrylic, which is a new
medium for her.
Helen is also just one of the fabulous artists selected to design one of the beautiful Elmer
sculptures that are all set to arrive on the streets of Maidstone in June 2021 as part of Elmer’s
Big Heart of Kent Parade.
