Helen Wheatley is the Featured Artist for the month of February at Art Gallery of Viera. She is presenting a collection of her latest mixed media abstract paintings.
These works involve a complex process of lifting and layering using ink, acrylic paints, stamps, stencils, etc. to create lost and found passages that relate a partial history of the creation of the artwork.
Helen Wheatley was born and raised in Pasadena, Maryland and while always feeling the need to be creative, she only began to get serious about her art after moving to Florida in 1995. For Helen, art has been a journey of discovery. Her work has evolved from realistic watercolors to mixed media, Ikebana, abstract acrylics and sculpture. Helen has studied with fine artists from across the United States and it is this diversity of influence that has led to her unique style today.
