Helen Sturtivant

25 year old, UK based artist.

“I’ve been drawing for as long as I can remember. I learned from my dad, who learned from my grandma, and from a young age I would sit and watch him draw. I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis aged 16 and since then, when things are bad, drawing and painting provide a welcome distraction and release. Experience of spending time in hospital has increased my awareness of the human body and has encouraged me to include aspects of nature and anatomy in my work. I studied photography alongside art at college, which inspired me to give my work an element of realism. More recently I have moved into painting as I enjoy the freedom it gives me with colour and tone.”
