  • Description


    Hi, I'm Helen, I'm a professional artist based in a small town in rural West Wales, twenty minutes from the Ceredigion coast and beaches. I work in my studio/ gallery and framing workshop with my daughter and granddaughter and large, hairy, friendly dog.

    Our gallery is open to the public Tuesdays to Saturdays 10-4. We also host art workshops and take part in many outdoor shows and events throughout the year.
    We love travel ourselves and meeting people from different parts of the world, with a view to promote friendship and trust between people of different backgrounds.

    We live in a popular tourist area, on the outskirts of a small, traditional Welsh market town. There's lots of country walking, some good small shops and pubs, a river and a castle. We are a 20 - 30 minute drive from a range of superb beaches and harbours; swimming, sailing and surfing are popular here.

    Please note: It's a very rural area so having your own transport is ideal if you want to take advantage of what he area has to offer. Travel around the area by public transport is possible, but will take some planning.

    This area is of Wales is bi-lingual with Welsh and English both being used.
    If you are interested in painting, I'll be very happy for you to do some whilst your here or learn about painting. I've a good library of art books and a lot of experience that I'm happy to share.

We'd like to hear from you if you could help out with a small amount of housework, some light gardening, studio support, outdoor art events, dog walking, and generally being helpful. If you could help with painting the garden wall, that would be fab too. No special skills are needed just a willingness to help out,
