About the artist:
Helen Tabor worked and travelled extensively in India and the Far East before coming to live with her family in the Scottish borders fifteen years ago.
Her paintings are very much inspired by her surroundings, in particular the rural Scottish Borders countryside, and the soft seascapes of South West Scotland. Her use of medium is expressive in style so that her subjects are to some extent secondary to the movement of paint and the use of colour. While this gives an energy to these paintings, they also have a feeling of calmness and simplicity, evoking the gentle ebb and flow of tides and the steady passing of the seasons.
