About Helen Peyton

Helen is an artist printmaker from the Yorkshire Dales who specialises in limited edition lino monoprint and lino reduction prints. Lino printing is a hand-crafted art and Helen creates her prints on an 1850's Victorian printing press that is the complete opposite to high tech, this one is no tech!

Past topics for her work have included the sky at night and ancient Yorkshire landscapes. Her current theme is a series of everyday objects such as; record players, radios, and televisions from the 1940s inspired by artefacts she discovered during a 3 year period as artist-in- residence at Craven Museum in Skipton, North Yorkshire.

Helen is the brain child of the smart gallery project which was nominated for the highly prestigious Turner Prize 2015.

Three of her retro themed lino reduction prints were selected for the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition 2011 and 2012 in London and she is currently having her work reviewed for submission for 2015.

Helen is also a photographer and her work appears in several published books and she also finds time to teach art and design.
