Helen Ballardie


In her paintings Helen Ballardie explores ideas around identity and perception, truth and fiction. She displaces characters from their usual environments and transposes them into new ones, and constructs ‘memories’ from a variety of disparate images.


She maps out her ideas on canvas using oil for its versatility but also uses a variety of other mediums including Inks, Household Paint, Felt Tip Pen, Pencil, Acrylics and Collage.


Helen studied Fine Art Painting at the Kent Institute of Art & Design, Canterbury & won the Dulwich Picture Gallery’s Open Exhibition last year.
