I'm revisiting the work of British painter Helen Downie . . . because her work is that good. You might remember the series of mystic illustrations that were commissioned by Gucci's Alessandro Michele back in 2017. Since then, the self-taught artist continues to produce vibrant, yet dark and enigmatic, portraits for other fashion labels, photographers and galleries. I also recently learned that Helen didn't start painting until the age of 48, on a total whim - hence her moniker, Unskilled Worker. It's never too late to manifest your passion, friends. Helen Downie is the perfect example of that.
