International success for Belinda Biggs
Leading Australian botanical artist and Lake Macquarie local Belinda Biggs is riding high on the crest of success. Belinda has been internationally recognised for her wildlife and botanical art but is also well known and awarded in other genre painting and drawing work. Her painting NSW Waratah, exhibited in the prestigious ‘Focus on Nature XIII’ at the New York State Museum was recently acquired by the museum for their permanent collection and she was subsequently invited to submit another work for their next exhibition. In addition, she has recently been included in the German publication, ‘Who’s Who in Visual Arts – 50 Masters of Realistic Imagery’!
The awards for Belinda’s work are numerous. She has been a finalist in the Mortimer Art Prize (the very best in realism), the Margaret Flockton Scientific Illustration Award at the herbarium of NSW and has works in private and public collections world-wide. A regular exhibitor in ‘Botanica’ at the Sydney Royal Botanic Gardens, over the years many Sydney-siders have enjoyed her work.
Belinda is also a respected and sought-after local painting teacher and has just returned from leading her 6th successful annual Belinda Biggs Painting Holidays on Norfolk Island. As an artist she is passionate about Norfolk; “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.
Students and artists who joined Belinda on her last trip ranged from amateurs to the more proficient as she caters to all skill levels. As an experienced artist herself in Watercolour, graphite, pen and wash, acrylics and colour pencil, Belinda is able to teach all these methods. With a maximum size of 12 painters + partners, Belinda is now taking bookings for her October 2016 Norfolk Island trip.
