Caroline Bellamy is a young emerging New Zealand artist who graduated from the IIam School of Fine Arts in Christchurch in 2016. Born in Nelson, Caroline started painting at a young age and sold her first painting in the Rutherford Gallery, Nelson aged 14. Her father being a sign writer and painter and mother a medical illustrator, she has always been surrounded with artistic careers and skills.
Energetic and thick brushstrokes depict naturalistic forms in her paintings. Simplification and exaggeration of the landscape communicates an emotive atmosphere and depicts a strong sense of depth.
