Helen Chamberlain is an internationally renowned watercolor 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.
The work of Helen Chamberlain brings one to pause in a world where the pace is chaotic. The capacity of human beings to connect seems to be diminishing as we rely on technology to replace our human efforts.
In the 1990’s Helen left the world of traditional artistic expression to pursue veil painting and artistic painting therapy studies at the Emerald Foundation in Den Haag, Holland. Her painting now involves the boundaries of light and darkness based on the color philosophies of J.W. von Goethe, Rudolf Steiner and Liane Collot d’Herbois. Josine Hutchison, founder of the Emerald Foundation, has recommended Helen as a teacher of Collot’s theory of light, darkness, and color to those living and working in North America. Helen resides in Nashville, Tennessee working in her studio surrounded by an ever-changing flower garden.
