BA (Hons) Printed Textile Design and Surface Pattern
Belinda specialises in Printed Textiles for fashion and interiors where she uses a lively mix of layered collected images, a variety of drawing styles and exuberant colours. She specialises in drawing flora and fauna and is equally at home with a pencil and paper or a computer designing digitally. Belinda has a passion for nature and the outdoors which is evident in all of her collections. Her current digitally printed wallpaper collection is inspired by her devotion to strive towards a more sustainable future where her inspiration has stemmed from wanting to highlight the trade of animals that are illegally hunted in the tropical rainforests. She feels it is important to highlight how rainforests are ecologically important to our planet and with this collection she celebrates the beauty of the wildlife and plantlife in these endangered areas.
