Helen Hardy Art

Textile artist and pen illustrator

My illustration range evolved from the original pictures I had hand drawn for my own walls when I moved 5-6years ago. They did not get to my wall though, as sold as soon as I mentioned them on my textile sites. I was blown away by the positive feedback and so the range was born.

I focus most of my time on commissioned personal hand drawings now. My signature circular design is created from places and buildings that mean something to you. They make the perfect wedding, housewarming present and often are bought for older children from their parents - Those who have everything and the parents dont know what to buy them. Please contact me if you would like to make an enquiry about these commissioned personalised drawings.

I also have coasters and teatowels. The illustrations are usually of cities and places. Currently the range includes:

  • Newcastle
  • Yarm
  • Stockton-on-Tees
  • Leeds
  • York
  • Whitby
  • London
  • Edinburgh
  • Harrogate
  • Durham
