Greet Helsen is a Belgian artist who is inspired by nature, drawing abstract landscapes and using acrylic like watercolour. She lives and works in Switzerland.
Greet studied at the Assenza Art school, Switzerland, where she graduated in 1984.
Greet Helsen started many years ago an exploratory journey into acrylic, she learnt the effects of dilution of pigments. Her first step, always, before working on the canvas, is diluting, until she obtains the degree of transparency desired.

Her paintings are created from a perspective of composition of colors, surfaces and lines, giving her painting a unique elegance, liveliness. The individual layers of colours are always visible; the splashes of colours and ink lines contribute to the harmony like a musical composition.
