Here, I offer a community to support your creative journey. It’s a space where you can get insights into how and why I make art. For subscribers there is a monthly post to nourish you and help you develop as a creative with your own voice. I help you set intentions, develop a regular practice and break away from perfectionism, embracing failures and helping you into creative flow.

I am Helen Hallows - a UK based mixed-media nature artist. I create landscapes in ink colour and stitch that tell the story of the changing seasons. Being in nature reminds me how small I am in the universe and my connection to everything and everyone. Over time I have learned how to support my artist soul and what it takes to develop a regular practice. I share my ideas and techniques on my online courses and face-to-face workshops and retreats. You can find out more at

If you need more support than the membership provides, I also offer mentoring for mid-life artists and makers. You can find out more here.

Why subscribe?

For the last 15 years I have run workshops and face-to-face courses sharing my techniques and ideas to create mixed-media artwork and sketchbooks. During that time I learned how self-critical artists can be and how we stumble with creative block and feeling insecure about our creative offerings. The Nurtured Artist provides a home for Soulful Creatives. It is a space to meditate on what it means to be creative (my written posts), and to be given monthly tasks that enable you to find flow and become bolder with artist self-care inspirations, insights into my studio processes and mini-lessons. I share the highs and lows of my creative life and encourage yours.

Stay up-to-date

You won’t have to worry about missing anything. Every new edition of the newsletter goes directly to your inbox. I publish a written post three times a month (occasionally more!) and a monthly subscribers club newsletter that challenges you to nurture your inner artist. These range from art retreat self-care suggestions to process based mini-lessons and studio insights.
