After moving with her husband from the Washington, D.C., area to New Bern, the charms of coastal Eastern North Carolina reinvigorated Belinda’s “passion to express God’s beauty in painting.” Her mediums of choice are mostly acrylics and watercolor.
Belinda studied geology and geography at George Mason University and the University of New Mexico, and she retired as a civil servant and cartographer from the U.S. Army.
She has taken a variety of art classes over the years. Currently, she is a member of the Coastal Carolina Plein Air Group and also belongs to the Twin Rivers Art Association. She is a member of the online gallery Daily Paintworks where most of her art work can be seen.
Belinda’s most recent accomplishment is winning the 2016 New Bern Mumfest competition, which made her painting the official artwork for the New Bern Mumfest 2017.
