Happy Art, for the Young at Heart

The Perky Painter is the passion and heart of Artist Helen Gibson. Helen crafts beautifully vibrant acrylic and digital paintings full of character and charm, thoughtfully recreated in prints and gifts.


Inspired by looking and seeing beyond the norm into a world of colour, texture and personality. This is boldly expressed in her bright, spirited artwork and whimsical characters.


Helen draws inspiration from the natural world, the British Countryside and her love of animals.

Our shop is bursting with colourful, gifts created from Helen's unique artwork

Pet Portraits

Our beautifully vibrant pet portraits capture more than a camera ever could


The item was posted 1st class and arrived the next day! The packaging was top class, a real professional touch. Clearly obvious that the owner Helen has put in a lot of time and effort into her products. Plan to jot down my photography ideas/notes using this book. Definitely will buy another in the future :)

I bought these as a gift for a writer friend and she loves them! I like them so much I bought 9 more as gifts.

This charming bag was even more impressive in person! My wife is a schoolteacher and animal lover, so this bag was a great find. I can tell that the artist really cares to craft with care.

Thanks for being so kind to our children at the BCTF over last 2 days. You have filled them with enthusiasm for art.
