Beldan K. Radcliffe

 

Falling in love with Martha’s Vineyard during her childhood family vacations, Beldan has made the island her home since 1996.  The peaceful natural beauty, and the harmony of a life by the sea deeply inspires her art.

 

Beldan is a mixed media, collage, and textile artist.  Over the years Beldan has been known for her printmaking and collage, most notably her copper plate etching, printed with a technique called chine collé.  In recent years, Beldan has moved in a new direction in collage, creating one-of-a-kind wearable art from upcycled textiles.  Always an admirer of fiber arts and quilting, the discovery of this technique ignited a new and exciting direction in her work.  She searches for beautiful colors and patterns in her recycled knits, and delights in re-combining these pieces to make beautiful and fun clothing!  Because of Beldan’s respect for the environment, the concept of recycling these beautiful fabrics otherwise cast aside is deeply satisfying.

 

 

You have likely seen Beldan’s artwork over the years at the Vineyard Artisan’s Festivals and the Chilmark Flea Market, where she has been an exhibitor for over 20 years.  She is also a partner at Night Heron Gallery in Vineyard Haven.
