Belinda was born in Chelmsford and received an academic scholarship to study at Aberystwyth University in Wales, graduating in 2014 with a First Class Honours Bachelor of Arts degree in Fine Art with Art History. After graduating, Belinda worked for a contemporary art Gallery in St Ives, Cornwall, prior to taking up a position at the Henry Moore Studios and Gardens in Hertfordshire. Since then Belinda has lived in a variety of locations including Berlin, Aix-en-Provence and Plymouth through her work as an Artists’ Studio Assistant.
She has exhibited in London, Dorset, Chelmsford, Southampton, Aberystwyth and at the Wales Millennium Centre, Cardiff. Her work features in private collections in the U.K, Spain and Slovakia, several of which have been commissioned paintings. In the summer of 2022 Belinda had her first major solo exhibition at Athelhampton House and Gardens, Dorset, featuring over 50 abstract paintings inspired by the history of this compelling stately home, installed throughout the Tudor house and its grounds.
Belinda’s Abstract paintings are often inspired by sites of historical significance from temple ruins, ancient settlements to towers and castles. She is passionate about travelling to such places, experiencing their aura, considering the people who may have lived there and the traces they have left behind as artefacts, relics, traditions and written records against the backdrop or influence of Nature. She attempts to capture the spirit of special places through the medium of paint and reveal a thread of connectivity between the past and present.
This search for inspiration has taken Belinda across many European borders, from Norway, Portugal and Italy and beyond to China, Mexico, India, Sri Lanka and the Caribbean. In particular, Belinda has had many memorable adventures on her extensive travels in the United States of America, the islands of Greece and the Canary Islands.
