Helen Hardy Art

Textile artist and pen illustrator

My textile art is my addiction. I simply love freemotion embroidery. I draw inspiration from animals and nature. I combine this with wool and fabrics to add additional texture and detail. My signature style is to cut out parts of my artwork that then overlap the mount - who knew this would be a crowd pleaser at events too!

My textile artwork comes in various sizes and each piece is unique and original. I have recently added prints to my range and these are a fast growing addition to my creations.
