About the Artist
Helen Woods was born in 1968 in County Antrim Northern Ireland. She is a self taught artist who has always been creative however when she discovered Encaustics, she was hooked.
Helen loves to experiment with textures and incorporating different materials into her work.
The molten, pigmented wax is fused onto boards in layers using heat to create abstract paintings.
Now living in rural County Wexford between hills and the beaches she is highly influenced by her surroundings. Her paintings encapture the spirit and light of the Irish landscape.
