From my Easel to You

Why do I paint?  I was asked that question once, the answer was, because I love it, because I can, but I paint because it is who I am. It is a part of me that cannot be denied.

To paint the soft eye of a horse or the muzzle with its fine whiskers, the grace and beauty of movement, for me is my dream. I have loved and lost some wonderful animals of my own, they taught me the importance of being true to your animals as I paint them, the finished piece must capture all that is them.

I’m very proud to showcase my Fine art prints in the shop. When you buy from me you are not buying a mass produced product you are buying hundreds of hours of experimentation, years of frustration and moments of pure joy, something made with feeling and pride. 

I was also invited to show paintings at the prestigious World Cup Polo event in the Hunter Valley in 2018 and to be part of the Emerson Exhibition at the highly acclaimed Emirates Wolgan Valley Resort in the Blue Mountains.

To be an artist is who I am to the exclusion of all else. When you are my client you get a piece of my life, a piece of my soul.


Welcome you to my online store, here you will find a collection of my original artworks, paintings, pastels and graphite drawings & high-quality Giclee reproductions.

Prints are available in small, medium or large prints, ready for framing.
Just for you or to give as a special gift.
I’m sure that you will find something that you will love here, thank you so much for taking the time to look at my work.


So some time ago I was given permission from Debbie Kepitis via Analese Trollope of Chris Waller Racing to paint Winx, I did this painting after her 25th win. The owners all saw it at that time however something Patty Tighe said made me decide not to show it until after she had safely finished racing! I am somewhat superstitious!

So that I could share my painting with you I have created a strictly limited edition print run. This is your chance to own a bespoke piece of Winx history, each hand signed by me with a certificate of authenticity. Once they are sold this print image will never be available again. When you purchase from me you, you do so knowing that I spent countless hours creating this and it was painted from my heart and soul.

I genuinely hope you love my painting as my as I loved creating it!

Winx – Limited Edition Print is available in two sizes:

FULL SIZE – The same size as the original painting 1 M High x 60 CM  Wide, unframed, with a limited print run of 100.
$750.00+ $20.00 AU Postage & Insurance / $30.00 International Postage & Insurance

SMALL – 80 CM High x 41CM Wide, unframed, with a limited print run of 250.

I would like to introduce you to my wonderful team members, I could not manage without their love and support.


My name is Ted; I am the CEO, I am the one who is responsible for keeping this whole show on the road! For making sure Mum works hard to fulfil her commitment to you, to give you the most beautiful painting possible. I am also required to keep others (namely Cloudy and Scrumpy) from bothering her, to keep her company on my strategically placed bed and to also make sure she has breaks, mostly so I can get treats.

creative director & quality control


My name is Cloudy, I am the creative director, my role is to direct…. Creatively….. not really sure what that means but apparently I’m very good at it. I am also responsible for quality control, rest assured I constantly jump up on Mum’s lap while she is painting to make sure she is doing the best possible job for you. I also believe I’m the one in charge of quality control of the treats.

pr & sales


My name is Scrumpy, I am PR and Sales, I am excellent at my job just because once you look into my eyes, my chocolate muffin eyes, see only my eyes, you will just melt and I will be able to get you to do anything I want!! Although, I may have to work on my technique a bit, as it doesn’t seem to be working with Mum when I’m turning on my best chocolate muffin eyes to get the treats.

the apprentice


Hi my name is Riv, I am the apprentice. I am only young and have a lot to learn but one day I hope to take over the reins of mum’s business and my aim is to keep it all driving forward, but at the moment I am a bit of a dogsbody. I am learning a lot, how to play with a stick, how to put on my mud makeup just when mum wants to take my photo and how to play catch me if you can. Ted, Cloudy and Scrumpy are wonderful, they encourage me in everything I do. Mum says she is hoping I get there in the end.


Thanks for browsing Helen Coulter Art. If you'd like to enquire about a custom work, I'd love to hear from you.

Here is the beautiful Asha, she was a mix of breeds, mastiff/german shepherd/kelpie/staffy cross - and probably a few others thrown in! She was with her owners from a puppy until she passed in June at the age of 13yrs. One of things that they wanted to have was the little wrinkles on her forehead, which was just so cute! This was the response I got once the painting had arrived! This is why I love my job so much! To be trusted with something so precious is humbling, and comments like these make me happy dance! 💞🐾
“Just arrived!! I love it Helen!! I've seen people say you got their animals personality in the pic but I never really understood that until I saw this! We knew you'd do a great job & you have, we're so happy with it” and “I was just admiring it again! You've nailed all the colours perfectly and she had lots of different colours in her coat”.

How gorgeous is this pony! He is called Lily's Pageant aka Basil. He is only 4 years old in his 1st season of showing and look what he did! Won his class at the Grand Nationals this year. I'm thinking this delightful boy has a big future! His owners are so very proud of him! they should also be proud of themselves as well, turning out such an impeccable pony! so I'm looking forward to painting Basil again when he wins his next garland!! lol. Thanks so much Sandy Natale for choosing me to paint him! 💞🐴😁
