Niave painter of her childhood Edwardian scenes Helen Bradley painting started in her 60's in order to show her grandchildren the happy childhood she remembered.
This is the first of a series of book portraying the pictures and stories in her art. She became incredibly collected despite the fact she looked a little like an upmarket Ena Sharples at her easel studio at home. She exhibited across the UK and aboard and I imagine as a female artist who was authentic following her roots and not to the artworld as a whole was probably a breath of fresh air.
