About the Artist

Since the young age of three when she painted a rainbow colored rock, Belinda has been constantly compelled to create and invent. She enjoys oil painting, sculpture,ceramics and photography. She recently indulged herself in a fun year of art courses as a mature student at Jacksonville University and throughly enjoyed it. Belinda moved to Florida with her husband Mark in the Navy.








Artist's Statement

I love to camp near Mayport beach where the Beach Morning Glory flowers. The flowers are very beautiful, lasting only a few hours each day before they wilt. The vines themselves are extremely hardy, getting covered in sand one day, then blown away by the wind or tide the next .
