Hélène Delmaire

is a French painter and printmaker born in Lille in 1987.

She was trained for three years at the Angel Academy of Art, Florence, Italy, which takes after the 19th century atelier methods to give its students proficiency in drawing and painting. She then returned to France where she was introduced to intaglio printmaking by engraving artist Nathalie Grall.

Drawn to the mysterious atmosphere and deep blacks of mezzotint prints, she took up the medium and started exhbiting prints as well as paintings. She has been showing locally and internationally, including at the Bardini Museum in Florence and the Ekaterinburg Museum of Fine Arts in Russia. Her work hangs in private and public collections in Europe, Russia, Australia and America.Fascinated by the pre-raphaelites, hermeticism and the middle ages, her work draws upon nature and plants both as aesthetic and symbolic elements. It is also an attempt at portraying an inner reality, rather than the everyday of waking life. Sleep and silence become more prominent than conscious life itself.

Hélène Delmaire is part of the International Mezzotint Society, the French printmakers group Manifestampe, and a member of La Maison des Artistes.
