The subject matter of Helen Fay’s work derives from a longstanding and passionate interest in natural history. Artistically, her impetus comes from creating a balance between a solid mass and the space in which it sits.
Normally very small editions, Helen's etchings go beyond the realms of natural history illustration. The composition, scale, skill and beauty of her work pushes them beyond any classification of etchings or natural history subjects and they stand as a significant fine art statement which appeal to a wide range of collectors.
