Born in Geelong, 1980, Belinda Wiltshire is a visual artist working mainly as a figurative oil painter. After studying Costume Design and Clothing Industry, and with no formal art training, Wiltshire has been exhibiting in solo and group shows since 2002.
She was a finalist in the 2004 Brett Whiteley Travelling Art Scholarship; the 2012 and 2016 Black Swan Prize For Portraiture; 2014 Benalla Nude; and a semi-finalist in the 2014 Doug Moran Prize. In her practice as an oil painter, she aims to create an internal story for her subject, sitting somewhere on the fringes of reality. The visual cues in her artwork are designed to instil a sense of space and time for her audience.
