Helena van Emmerik – Finn
Each one of our Barn Sales and Shows has a theme. I am wild for themes and our upcoming Spring Sale is no different, which is entitled Artisans and Their Works. Along with our unique selection of furniture, home decor objects and gifts will be an impressive showing of art in a variety of mediums. A portion of the proceeds from the Spring Sale will benefit both the Yellow Springs Art Show and ECHOES. Both of which I will feature in subsequent blogs. Below you will find a Brief Bio and some samples of work from Pastel Artist Helena van Emmerik-Finn who we are delighted to have join us in the Barn!
Helena’s family emigrated from Holland a few weeks before she was born and settled in upper Bucks County. She attended the Philadelphia College of Art where she studied graphic design, photography and film-making. After college, Helena traveled extensively, including back-packing and youth-hostelling through Europe, North Africa and India. She now lives in Buckingham, Bucks County with her husband, Bob.
She enjoys the medium of pastel because it gives her the freedom to work with strong colors in a spontaneous, intuitive style, and with the immediacy of a bold, impressionist application. Her landscapes range from local scenes to depictions of her many travels.
