Belinda Biggs has gained international recognition due to her prize-winning illustrations of the natural world, but is inspired to paint the beautiful scenery of Norfolk Island. Belinda teaches regularly booked out classes and workshops around Australia, Italy, Rarotonga (the Cook Islands), New Zealand, India, France and the United Kingdom. An experienced instructor in a variety of media including: watercolour, graphite, pen and wash, acrylics and colour pencil, Belinda has helped everyone from beginners to the more experienced in extending their artistic practise.
In 2022 Belinda was invited to become a member of the Royal Art Society (est 1880) in Sydney NSW. Her works reside in private and public collections worldwide. Her painting NSW Waratah was exhibited in the prestigious ‘Focus on Nature XIII’ at the New York State Museum and was recently acquired by the museum for their permanent collection, with Belinda selected once again to exhibit in New York – ‘Focus on Nature XV’. She was also recently included in the German publication, ‘Who’s Who in Visual Arts – 50 Masters of Realistic Imagery’!
Belinda is also a respected and sought after artist and has been leading successful ‘Painting Holidays’ to beautiful Norfolk Island since 2010 – its unique scenery providing a continual source of passion and inspiration: "I just love it, everywhere you look there is something to be painted”
With an incredible range of panoramas to choose from, there is literally no end of inspiration with easy access to almost every type of landscape. Here you will find dramatic land and seascapes, rugged clifftops, secluded bays and beaches, evocative convict ruins, lush rainforests and stunning flora.
Belinda caters to all skill levels, students and artists who joined her last trip ranging from beginners to the more proficient. As ad experienced artist herself in watercolour, graphite, pen and wash, acrylics and colour pencil, Belinda is able to teach all of these methods.
With a maximum of 10 painters + partners, Belinda is now taking bookings for her October 2023 Norfolk Island trip.

IMPORTANT ADVICE FOR NORFOLK ISLAND
NB: Travel restrictions and entry requirements may change at short notice. Please check back regularly for updated information.
It is important that you keep up to date with the latest government requirements available at: http://www.norfolkisland.gov.nf/covid-19-advice-norfolk-island
It is strongly recommended that you still undertake a Rapid Antigen Test (RAT) for COVID-19 within 48 hours of departing and if this is positive do not travel to the Island. Norfolk Island has very limited health facilities compared with the mainland and particularly if you are elderly, unvaccinated or with a comorbidity and become infected with COVID-10 you will strain these facilities.
There remains a mandatory requirement to report a positive result to wither PCR or RAT for COVID-19 to the Norfolk Island Health and Residential aged Care Service (NIHRACS) whilst on the Island.
This will result in self-isolation until your symptom free, at your own cost.
Prices shown are in Australian dollars and are payable by personal or bank cheques or by direct deposit into our Commonwealth Bank account (please see bank details below). If you would prefer to pay by Visa or Mastercard, please add 1.5% to the total cost of your holiday package.
