Helen Acklam is an artist living and working from South-West Scotland. In 2012, she graduated with a degree in Drawing from the University of Cumbria. Inspired by the Scottish landscape, seas, history, archaeology, geology and myth, she uses a variety of media to convey her interest in this breathtaking landscape.
Her mixed media work is developed using a blend of different relevant materials and textures. For instance, the use of sand from Luskentyre beach brings a sense of belonging and adds authenticity to the work, combined with acrylic paint, ink, gouache and graphite, to achieve the desired topography.
In exploring surface, form and texture, Acklan produces three themes of work: watercolours, acrylics and intricately-made pieces from textiles and plaster. She produces work that are now exhibited across the UK.
