Artist of the Month for June

Our "Artist of the Month" for June is: Helena Kuttner-Giasson. Helena works in a variety of media including watercolor, pen and ink, pencil, and acrylic on canvas. She is well known artist and her work has been shown in many venues.
According to her artist statement:
          "With a background in printmaking, the various techniques continue to influence my creative
           process and the finished artwork. Creating images of nature...water, clouds, landscapes,                
           flowers...stirs memories of places and people fondly remembered."
Her works can be lush and flowing, crisp and precise, colorful, or subtle.
Here at The Gift Shop we have Helena's prints, original works, cards, even wine charms and key rings decorated with her artwork.
