Lucy Smith

I graduated from Central Saint Martins, and then life (starting a family and earning a ‘sensible’ living) rather got in the way – no more! Finally getting closer to a healthy balance. All encouragement is appreciated.

“These screenprints are developed from drawings in pastel made out of doors. The translation into a new medium is the thrill, like seeing your children grow up in ways you could not anticipate.”

Belinda Chen

Belinda Chen is the creator of Bel’s art world. She is a freelance illustrator, printmaker and book artist based in East London.

Her passion for drawing and art began from a very early age. Growing up in a small family run ceramic factory in North Taiwan. Belinda imagined the factory as a giant playground. It has inspired her to create from childhood striving to create dream-like utopia to be enjoyed by both children and adults of all ages.

Her work normally appears in children’s story books, editorials, textiles and stationery.
