A vintage oil on canvas abstract painting titled 'Rhapsody' by Helen Hale, signed circa 1970.

Helen Hale ROI b.1936 in Hertfordshire and educated at St. George's School, Harpenden.

From 1955 to 1970 she combined a career in designing and illustrating books and book jackets (for the publisher Robert Hale Ltd.) with part-time study at St. Martin's School of Art, London and the Sir John Cass School of Art. During the 1960s she was an active member of the Free Painters and Sculptors group together with the 1960s luminaries Cecil Stephenson and Frank Avray Wilson. She also exhibited with the National Society, the Royal Institute and the Society for Women Artists. Whilst living in Hampstead Hale was a prominent member of the Hampstead Artist's Council and the Women's International Art Club. Helen Hale’s work tends to be abstract or semi-abstract as Hale attempts to convey feelings, mood, or a sense of place through colour, form and shape rather than being constrained by specific visual references. Her imagination is stimulated by the challenge of translating the invisible into the visible. Method of working - Helen’s paintings are mainly in oil, applied with a knife.

Antique and vintage goods are both stylish and sustainable. 

They have a low carbon footprint thanks to their existing lifespan and they help reduce deforestation because no trees are being cut to produce them.

They help reduce landfill because, unlike mass-produced non-recyclables, they are high quality in material and craft, and are destined to outlive most other possessions.

Everything we buy interacts with the environment. Second hand furniture and accessories are not only unique, characterful and nostalgic, but also contribute to a sustainable home.
