Helen Bradley was born on the 20th of November 1900 at number 58, High Street, Lees, near Oldham, Lancashire. She was interested in art all her life, but it was not until she was in her sixties and her grandchildren were asking what life was like when she was a child, that she started painting the scenes she remembered of her own Edwardian Childhood.
These narrative paintings were first exhibited at The Saddleworth Art Society in 1965, followed by a London exhibition in 1966, and a sell out exhibition at the appropriately named Carter Gallery in Los Angeles in 1968.
In 1971 Jonathan Cape published the first of four books "And Miss Carter Wore Pink". This was an instant success. German, French, Dutch and Japanese editions were published, and a special edition produced for the U.S.A.
Requests for illustrations of her work were satisfied by the publication of 30 Signed Limited Edition Prints, 3 Unsigned Limited Edition Prints and 11 Open Edition Prints.
Magazine features, appearances on television and radio endeared this Grandma in her sixties to the general public. Helen Bradley awarded the M.B.E. for services to the arts died on the 19th of July 1979 shortly before she was due to receive her M.B.E. from Her Majesty The Queen.
