Portrait painter

Portrait painter / lansdcape painter

Whatever your project, it’s at the tip of my brushes!

Portrait painter- Specializing in portraits and landscapes, my artwork ranges from baroque, to  realistic or even to psychedelic style.

As a modern Portrait painter I feel halfway between fauvism and figurative. I love spreading paint through colorful flattened effects, always guided by the will to break from the academic rules.

I only created my company in 2019, but as far as I can remember, I have always expressed the need to create, model, draw, paint, make the invisible visible and share my creations.

In addition to portraits, I am keen on working on other projects, such as narrative figuration.
From faithful to abstract portrait, from watercolor to oil or acrylics, from black and white to psychedelic hues, from single to multiple, order your own personal artwork!

My animal watercolor paintings

My artwork develops and evolves according to seasons, to adorn with monochromatic or, on the contrary, ultra-pigmented and unexpected shades. I really like playing with lights and shadows, giving a modern character to pieces seemingly simple. Here are some of my late artworks created in my studio.

Biography Helen BARENTON

Author of novels, painter, and sculptor, I am often asked what the common denominator of everything I do. However, if I like art in all its forms, creation is not only about imagination, it is also and above all, a very particular way of observing. The miracle of life is what inspires my work.

Beyond my strong desire to continually achieve a higher level of expertise and technical ability is my longing to describe my sincere interpretation of beauty. Hopefully through my painting I will not only express the surface level of what I observe but the more important soulful and emotional discoveries of my internal world.
My art practice is an extension of my ongoing journey to unearth the treasures of secret wisdom only found by delving into my emotional landscape. Many truths about our human spirit hide in our trauma shadows, my aim is to expose these and transform them into something beautiful. This allows my artistic vision to be both traditional and contemporary. This is through art that I fight indifference between men and that I propose new ways of seeing the world. Passionate about art, especially painting, I offer you an initiatory journey immersed in my world. 

Dream the one that looks like you! Do not hesitate, it’s over here!
