The Hatch Art House featured artist for May is Helen Mary Beck. She is a mixed media artist working with watercolor on canvas highlighted with embroidery. With a background in art therapy, Helen is passionate about the importance of story-telling in art making. With her unique technique of combining watercolor with embroidery, Helen Mary Beck creates textured paintings that capture the imagery within science, beauty and nature. Beck’s contrast of the unpredictability of her bold watercolor on canvas combined with the meticulous detail of her embroidered patterns gives her work a striking individuality.
Helen’s work will be showcased May 1st-31st with her artist reception coinciding with MMoCA’s Gallery Night, May 2nd from 5-9pm.
