About Belinda

Belinda’s interest in Botanical Illustration and Plant Portraits has evolved out of a life-long passion for plants instilled in her from an early age by her parents who were both gifted and knowledgeable gardeners.

All her illustrations are life size and drawn from live specimens, many of which she grows herself.

She uses the traditional medium of watercolour on paper for the original paintings using many layers of paint to build up to the vibrant colours which make her painting so striking.

She was thrilled to win a Silver medal at one of the Royal Horticultural Society’s winter shows in London for her paintings of Capsicums which she had finished just 18 months after taking up a paintbrush for the first time. One of these paintings – Capsicum frutescens Malagutea appears in a book “A Herança Africana em Portugal” (The African Heritage in Portugal) written by Isabel Castro Henriques, a well known Portuguese Author.

Belinda is a member of Nymans Florilegium, a team of artists recording the important collections of plants from around the world and in particular Chile, held at Nymans Gardens in West Sussex. The Florilegium will be holding an exhibition at Nymans in the spring of 2017. Nymans is a National Trust Garden.

She welcomes commissions which are carried out in the appropriate season. Some of her previous work is available as signed limited edition Giclée prints.
