Belinda “Billy” Nye

I am a Melbourne-based printmaker, documenting Australian suburbia through the artistic lens.  My primary mediums of choice are oil painting and printmaking, particularly the process  of woodcutting. Every print I make is months of carving into a plate, printing and carving some   more, creating a labour of love through detail.

After printing on archival quality printmaking   paper, I begin the process of hand painting, spending hours individualising each print. The process of printmaking in this manner is extensive but the results are always striking, each print   with its own original quality.


I started my creative career as a photographer working in London.  After being accepted into the London University to study photography, I opted out to go to New York and marry instead. Whilst living in New York I joined the Hampton’s Photography Group, New York and began a photography business. In 2009 I graduated with a Diploma of Visual Arts, majoring in painting and printmaking.

I now reside on the Mornington Peninsula and have my own studio equipped with printing press. After completing a Cert 4 in Workplace Training and Assessment I was able to begin teaching. Recently completing a Double Degree in Fine Art and Visual Culture I now teach printmaking on the Peninsula and exhibit my paintings through Manyung Gallery.
