camilla engman ace camp

goteborg

may 2013!


help me to get to sweden and you will be

rewarded with art.



Hi, my name is Belinda Kemp.

I am an artist and surface designer. i have been running my fine art business {gretchenmist} for 4 years.

Some of you may know that 2012 was a particularly difficult year for me {in a nutshell: long treatment for breast cancer and separation from my husband, who left half way through the year of treatment} and I'm pretty keen to put all of that behind me and make some life changes and new beginnings.


So I'm off to Goteborg, Sweden to attend

the Camilla Engman Art camp in May 2013.


This Art Camp has given me a positive goal to work towards & focus on throughout my treatment and the time has now come for me to undertake the journey.

The camp consists of 6 days of learning new ways of seeing, sketching, painting and collaging with the inspirational aritst, Camilla Engman, in her studio.

It will be a life-changing experience for me and an incredible opportunity to grow my art practice.

Please join me on this journey and you will be one of the first to see and own some of the new work inspired by the gathering of knowledge, experience and new skills.



about me:

I am a Melbourne-based artist & surface designer. I mainly work with acrylic paint, graphite, hand stitching and collage.

My work is an exploration of emotional reactions to the beauty within my immediate environment. A connection to my experience of an idyllic country landscape during childhood drives the need to portray the beauty found in domestic settings and urban landscapes in my work.

My works depict my vision of a perfect world - a calm, meditative space - communicated through layers of colour blocks and sections of representative imagery and repeat pattern. I focus only on what resonates and draws me in.

By expressing observations of beautiful objects and moments in my work, I aim to create a space for the viewer to form a deeper connection to his or her surroundings and to access the contentment that can be experienced from this process.

My work has been featured on many design blogs {eg designformankind, designmilk, realsimple, decor8 and frankie magazine blog}, and in retail spaces and galleries.





To see more of my work, you can visit the links at the bottom of the page.
