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.

Coronavirus Information

With the current outbreak of covid-19 and its impact around the world, we have decided to temporarily close our online shop of physical goods. However, we are working on bringing you downloadable goods

(pictures to print at home etc) as soon as possible.

We are still open for commissions, please get in touch with any questions.


If you’re desperately in need of a gift to cheer up a loved one in these extremely hard times I absolutely sympathise so please feel free to get in touch if you’re unable to find an alternative. I am personally relatively low risk so can post any necessary orders to you, however my partner is high risk so am limiting this, I will continue to follow all WHO & UK government guidance and restrictions.


Wishing you all find some light in these dark days, best wishes and keep safe xx

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.
