MY NAME IS BELINDA FIRMAN
I'm the artist and designer behind the body of work on offer at the Thought Gallery.
Creativity and philosophy have always been an integral part of who I am. As a young child I would make, bake and create whenever I could. As a teenager I illustrated and wrote poetry.
It was only natural that as a young adult I embarked on a University Degree in Design from the College of Fine Arts, UNSW. I graduated with an Honours Degree in 2002.
For the next 8 years I took on a number of creative roles including freelance graphic design and owner and designer of a boutique stationery business. Some of my clients over those years included Boeing, Insurance Australia Group and many local artists and businesses.
In 2009 our first 'little man' arrived and I made a life-altering decision to stay at home with my children during their formative years. My husband and I made a sea change from Sydney to the beautiful Central Coast and whilst some days have been challenging, it has been the most rewarding experience of my life.
10 years and four children later, I was ready to delve back into the creative world, and spending a decade raising 'little humans' had altered and crystallized my focus. In 2018 the Thought Gallery was born.
The Thought Gallery is a business dedicated to producing work that empowers and inspires. I am passionate about the healthy well being of humans, particularly the youngest beings in our society. With my combined interest and experience in typography, illustration and graphics, I aim to deliver art that provokes thought and holds meaning.
I hope you enjoy viewing my online gallery and can find a piece that resonates with you or a special loved one in your life.
