Welcome to H2O Designs

Upcoming Events

Hello and welcome to H2O Designs. My name is Helen Butler and I am based in Argyll, of the West Coast of Scotland.
Feel free to browse through this collection of my art work and leave any comments or questions.

I like to experiment with lots of different mediums and subject areas. Some of these include canal art, neurographics, flowers, animals and birds. More recently I have been doing wood related projects using pyrography and mixed media, steampunk inspired creations.

I started painting to help me get through the recovery of major brain surgery. This was to help to control my epileptic seizures. My art is influenced by this experience and therefore helps to tell the story of my journey. I now use my art to help raise awareness of brain surgery for epilepsy. You can read more about this here.

If you like any of the work shown or have any questions please feel free to drop a message. Prints, original paintings, wood work and greeting cards are available in my online store and commissions can be arranged. If you are interested in any of the original pieces of work not shown in my shop please get in touch.

Customer reviews

This artist is bursting with a constant flow of creativity done to a high standard of art. Love the seaside themed art from seahorses to fishing boats also other wildlife & birds all done with different painting styles along with wood burned designs. There are some very colourful neurological designs which are so pleasing to look at.
I am fortunate to spend time with Helen Butler at the local markets. Through this I was able to secure several christmas presents for distant friends. I love that everything she does is handmade and therefore unique. I have bought a Lochgilphead plaque, 2 Robin tree decorations, a galleon and a cheeky horse. All the recipients were so happy with their gifts. Each one tailored for their personal needs and desires. Helen's skill is undeniable and her range is immense. There is something for everyone. I am so grateful for the time she takes.
Thank you so much Helen for your beautiful work. We couldn’t be more pleased. Elephants have been our lucky animal with our little girl. She also has a lot of dumbo. So couldn’t resist a little something for the house. It’s just perfect just what we wanted. Will definitely be coming back and highly recommend. The work is amazing and so detailed. Thanks again. 🤗
Family of elephants
Thank you so much Helen for the beautiful wooden picture of Lochgilphead that I bought from you for my dad's Christmas. It really was wonderfully made and I think he intends to get it hung up in the caravan when we get back to Lochgilphead in the spring. The countdown is on now as to how many weeks until the park opens 😂. Thanks again, you have definitely hit 5 stars in my books.
Fantastic quality, very accommodating seller. Recipient was thrilled by this gift.
Pyrography house
I ordered a plaque of cottages along the Crinan canal for my sister, it was really lovely and my sister was chuffed to bits.

Have received a lovely painting of our Cilla, our family cat!
I would highly recommend this artist I bought a pyrography picture and some hand painted cards. I was thrilled with them. I will buy from her again.
Love Helen's work, collected 2 pieces today as Christmas presents & delighted with them. Very personal, 1 of a kind pieces of art...I'm always looking for something different and these are perfect...thoroughly recommend.
Commissioned a piece to sit pride of place in our newly renovated home. Helen has completed an absolutely stunning piece that is the focal point in our main living area. Over the moon with the painting and the service, will definitely have more pieces. Thank you Helen.
Neurographic 1 metre canvas
Helen is such a talented artist as you can clearly see from her website. Her talent is a typical example of creativity often seen in famous artists who have suffered from Epilepsy so I think Helen is certainly heading for this fame as well.
I have always loved herons and when I saw Helen’s sign work I asked her to create a house sign featuring one. What she has produced for us is absolutely gorgeous! It is so beautiful that I may need to bring it back inside! We love it so much - thank you!
Heron house sign
Pleasure to do business with Helen... She had a really unique artistic style
I have bought a beautiful painting for my daughter who absolutely loves it. Helen is so professional and went the extra mile to get me the painting quickly. Five stars all round!
Helen produces artwork that conveys a profound message. This piece is deeply emblematic of us that have travelled the journey of epilepsy and brain surgery. She packaged it and shipped it to the U.S. for me, and I will forever treasure it.
I am from the USA and I saw Helen's paintings on Facebook and fell in love with them. I was able to get hooked up with her and I ordered the Swan that you see in her paintings. I am extremely happy with the painting. Helen is a very talented young lady and her painting are amazing. She is very quick when you order also. I received my painting less than 2 weeks after I ordered it. Less than 2 weeks coming overseas is amazing. Thanks again Helen! I can't wait to order another one sometime soon.
I would highly recommend H2O Designs I got a portrait done for my daughter & partner of their beautiful dog it was beautiful done by H2O the detail was amazing taken from different photos and painted in to one painting . very happy customer and would recommend if you are looking to get a painting done
I was very impressed by the original designs used on the greeting cards. I have purchased several packs of cards which I will be using throughout the year.
