The Artist and Her Work
Helen Chamberlain is an internationally renowned water color artist whose art celebrates color, light, darkness and the spirit of the heart. Inspired by the work and person of European painter Liane Collot d'Herbois, her work reflects a new sense of inner excitement and freedom, balancing traditional and experimental concepts of light and space. Her veil painting technique exhibits a refinement and energetic spirit that encourages the viewer to experience the art on many levels.

Veil painting takes much patience – moving the brush slowly and gently as transparent washes of color are applied to the canvas. Three to four hundred transparent layers capture the light, giving an inner luminosity that draws the viewer into the work. The veil painting method creates a "color space" - colors come into being and there is a surprise each time as the painter never has a particular motif in mind. The color will sing through in different areas and then certain images emerge.
It is always a mystery – an exciting mystery - in that the artist never knows what is going to happen!
