Belinda is an award-winning contemporary landscape artist living and working in Devon. She finds herself more drawn to the abstract, by absorbing herself in the landscape and then working in the studio using her emotions and sense of place. Qualifications include a BA Honours degree in Illustration at Chelsea School of Art and an MA in Narrative Illustration and Editorial Design at Brighton University. Last year she won Devon Life’s Landscape Artist of the Year and got shortlisted for the Jackson’s Open Oil painting competition. This year she had her first London exhibition and has been shortlisted for the SAA Artists of the Year.
Belinda’s Art for Life exhibition of contemporary oil paintings share her emotive response to the environment of Devon and Cornwall. Each painting is worked on over a number of days building up layers of texture and colour to create a finished piece which hopes to engage the viewer to make their own opinions and feelings towards the art.
