Helen Bradley - Our First Morning in Blackpool
Helen Bradley (November 20, 1900 – July 19, 1979) was an artist born in the village of Lees, England. Her oil paintings vividly depict Lancashire life as it was between 1900 and 1910. Helen was born at 58 High Street, Lees. She began to paint when she was in her sixties. She painted mainly with her hands and fingers. Her paintings now fetch tens of thousands at auction. A series of books illustrated with these naive paintings topped the bestseller lists in the early 1970s. She died shortly before she was due to be honoured with an MBE.
