Printmaker and watercolourist.

Lives south of Dirranbandi QLD. Married with  3 adult sons.

A lifetime of painting in water colour Belinda has been recognized by numerous awards in this medium. She has also won printmaking awards with her small Solar Plate Etchings.

-      Theme is  predominantly non urban with a love of  birds, horses, sheep and poultry reflected in the works, along with  surrounding landscape. However any subject with interesting contrast of light and shade creates inspiration.

-      Style is becoming more and more impressionist as the artist wishes to distance herself from the perfect projector aided artwork we see so much of these days.

-      Over her 35year career, Australian birds have  probably been the artists  favourite subject  and her passion for them  has seen the bird studies become signature pieces.

-      Belinda has held a number of Solo Shows and many shared whilst also exhibiting regularly in annual art shows like Aspects in Goondiwindi and the Toowoomba Grammar art show. Her “one woman shows ” with few exceptions have been virtual sellouts  and she feels fortunate to have loyal followers returning repeatedly to collect new works .

-      Belinda has had some help from tutors along the way including summer school with David Taylor and printmaking with Christine Porter.
