You may know Helen Butler for her work as website developer with the council, but did you also know she’s also an artist?

Helen’s current exhibition ‘The Eclectic Collection’ celebrates Oban’s RNLI and is showing at the Scottish Fisheries Museum in Anstruther until May 3rd. You can also visit her website www.h2odesigns.co.uk to find out more. A 10% donation from all the wave and lifeboat paintings will go to Oban lifeboat.

Talking about her work, Helen said:

 “Living in Lochgilphead, I’m inspired by water and much of my work features the sea and canals. I’m used to seeing the Oban lifeboat on my travels and the team kindly shared a series of photographs of the Mora Edith MacDonald and her crew for me to work from.

“I started painting, six years ago to help me get through the recovery process after brain surgery to help control my epileptic seizures. So many people have helped with my recovery; I wanted to give something back. Raising awareness and helping to fundraise for the RNLI is my way of saying thanks. ”
