You may know Helen Haberstroh as a long time supporter of the Kennedy Heights Arts Center, one of the original Kennedy Collective members (then “Guild”), or as one of our friendly Art Shop Volunteers! But did you know she also creates beautiful illustrations using pen and ink and watercolor?
Extensive travel opportunities gave birth to “Prints with Tints” by drawing with pen on site and later adding water color to each small print. These became the foundation of displays at juried outdoor fine art festivals for over 20 years.
She started “HOMES by HELEN”, a custom home portrait business 30 years ago, specializing in highly detailed historic homes and churches. Over 1000 paintings (and counting) have been produced for clients from California to Massachusetts. A chance meeting with a magazine editor resulted in the publication of her book: “Painting Portraits of Homes in Pen, Ink and Watercolor” which is now in national and international distribution by F & W Publications, Cincinnati, Ohio.
Stop by this Saturday, Dec. 14th from 12-3 pm to meet this talented artist, enjoy complimentary coffee and tea, and browse our Art Shop & Holiday Art Market.
