About

Hi! I'm Western Australian podiatrist and artist with a love for painting beautiful turquoise seascapes. The abundance of bright beach life on my home coast is a constant inspiration. These seascapes provide calming holiday inspiration and have the power to enrich both corporate and home environments. Follow on Instagram and Facebook @pipphelpsart for more ☺️ Please note that reproductions of any original artworks may be made and sold at the artists discretion #bluethumb #bluethumbartist
Having grown up on the West Australian coast I'm becoming well known for painting the idyllic scenes of my much loved and well trodden home beaches. From playing on the beach with my big brother, within view from the kitchen window, to holidaying at Rotto, to living and surfing at Trigg and Scarborough, lifesaving at North Cott and swimming for West Coast Swim Club ...WA waters are a constant inspiration. I will not rest until I paint perfect shallow sunlit water...which could take another 40 years.. which makes your investment in my art a safe bet ;)
