Welcome to the website of fine artist Helen Davison Bradley, featuring a selection of portrait, still life and landscape studies. My aim is to give a flavour of my life as an aspiring artist, and my blog includes many studies and critical analysis of my technical processes and the thinking behind my work. I also highlight the many wonderful artists and writers that inspire me. Please feel free to add to the dialogue by leaving a comment.
