Helen Hardy Art

Textile artist and pen illustrator

A little about me....



Thankyou for visiting my website and online shop.

I am Helen and I am a self employed artist living in the North East of England with my husband and two sons, not forgotting my two shih tzu dogs too.

I love creating textile art with my main passion being freemotion embroidery and I love pen illustrations.

My artwork can be found across the North East in galleries, shops and events I attend.

I love hearing from you and often take commissions so please contact me with your ideas.

Enjoy taking a look around....

My textile art is created through freemotion embroidery, wool and fabric. They are textured, detailed pieces of nature and wildlife.

My illiustrations are of architectural buildings and sites. I mainly create commissioned personalised circular original drawings. I do also have a range of cities and places that include: coasters, teatowels, mugs, tote bags and other homeware items.

I can also commission a piece especially for you; please contact me I would love to hear from you.
