Helen Tuck – Artist

Profile2

Helen Tuck is an environmental artist based in the North West of England. Her site orientated works explore how environments are perceived.

Working both within and without the gallery setting, her work is an expression of her own and others ideas. Through the layering of languages: visual, statistical and descriptive, her work aspires to present a broader interpretation for the viewer. Exhibiting predominantly in the North West, she is currently working towards a large scale outdoor audience participation piece, which would centre other’s experiences of place at the heart of the work.

Helen received her Masters of Landscape and Environmental Arts; specialising in painting, from the University of Cumbria in 2009 and her Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from Cumbria Institute of the Arts in 2007.

Helen has kick started and worked on numerous inclusive projects in North Cumbria, including the running of independent art spaces and interactive arts events.

Helen recently returned to work maternity leave from her work for a not-for- profit trust in North Cumbria, teaching arts, crafts and photography to vulnerable adults.
