Belinda has been working as an artist for over 50 years. She has worked in 3 D and latterly she has become passionate about cast glass. She is exhibiting in FreshAir in Quennington in 2013

I undertake private commissions at my workshop in East London and work part time as head designer at Lead & Light Studios.
Creative Glass Designer. Design Consultancy and Product Design. My experience has very been enhanced by the understanding and harmony between the beauty and skill of hand-crafted objects and the manufacturing process, aiming to produce pieces that are both cutting edge, tactile, refined and sophisticated. I am also currently carrying out a Phd in Glass, which supports my creative studio practice.
After 4 years studies at Federal Arts and Crafts College in Vevey (Switzerland), and a decorator diploma, I lived for 20 years in various countries in Africa and Asia, teaching art and practising various local art techniques. In 1985, I opened my professional glass studio in Southern France
I work with kiln formed glass and mixed media to explore the place where the familiar becomes unfamiliar and the known merges with the unknown. I believe that it is in these spaces that the seeds of transformation are sown and new ways of thinking and being are opened up.
