Helen Powell Hooper was a Wisconsin artist who enjoyed working in watercolor and a combination of natural objects, paper, and paint. She was fascinated by the natural world, including the smallest life forms, such as lichens and mosses. She also loved wildlife and the woods.

She lived most of her life in Manitowoc, Wisconsin, and was herself a non-traditional student who took classes all her life. Some of those classes were held at The Clearing in Ellison Bay, Wisconsin. In addition, Helen Powell Hooper was a teacher who enjoyed teaching adult learners. She specialized in teaching Art History, and inspired many art students to go into art as a career.

I have selected just a few of her beautiful paintings to show on this page as a tribute to her creativity. Helen Powell Hooper was a non-traditional student all of her life, and deeply enjoyed learning and growing as a person throughout her artistic career.

She was an inspiration to me as well, and helped to instill in me a deep respect and awareness of nature and of everyone's responsibility to protect our wild places.

Art by Helen Hooper

Helen Powell Hooper often used many natural objects in her paintings. I have selected a few of her oil paintings to show how she used color and form in a unique and beautiful way.

She used shells, shredded paper, lichens, moss, and other things she found in the forest to add texture and detail to her nature paintings. She also liked to paint abstract city and travel scenes and shapes, and had a beautiful way of combining colors.

Look for more photos here later on too. Thanks for visiting!
