The Magic of Marie-Helen

She can make animals speak!
Look closely.
A little chick is winking at you !
A pig shows you his discontent, a sheep her distress.
Each watercolour has a story to tell, a message to pass on. Nothing is insignificant. Everything is delicately put in place to express her great love of animals, from the most humble to the most powerful.
She can pursuade you to look differentely at a little mouse or an owl.
With her finess, her technique, her deep feeling of empathy and her virtuosity, she captures the essence of a look, or an attitude.
Helping animals is everything to her, by making the common chicken look like the friendly next door neighbour.
Her work captures the very essence of the animal’s soul.
