About me

I’m a digital photomedia artist based in Sydney, Australia. In my other life I work in higher education as an educational designer and researcher at the University of New South Wales.

Since graduating with the prize in Printmaking at the South Australian School of Art, I have worked for many years in a variety of photographic and digital media, sometimes incorporating painting, drawing and sculptural assemblage.

I am a long-time resident of Bundeena in the Royal National Park south of Sydney, and regularly exhibits in solo and group exhibitions in Sydney and Sutherland Shire, particularly at Hazelhurst Regional Gallery and Arts Centre in Gymea, where I have also initiated and coordinated group exhibitions. (https://belindaallen.wordpress.com/exhibitions).

I have been a finalist in recent years in many selective exhibitions, including the Hazelhurst Biennial Art on Paper award, The Blake Prize for Religious Art, and the ‘Sydney Life’ Photographic exhibition in Hyde Park, Sydney.

My educational and working background is in printmaking, photography and graphic design. Go to these links to find out about my university work, and myPhD work.

    • Thanks for the feedback krystal!
      My use of mandala-like images comes from my wish to somehow represent a more spiritual connection to land than we usually experience in western materialistic cultures.
      My hope is that this invites a transcendental relationship to landscape, and presents an immersive and meditative experience of place.
      As well as, it looks very beautiful 🙂
