Hill End has attracted Australian artists since the 1940's. A landscape torn apart by gold mining in the 19th c and then abandoned has inspired generations of Australian painters with the twisted forms and sharp light of it's ravaged landscape. Beginning with Russell Drysdale and Donald Friend, The giants of the Australian art world have painted Hill End, Margaret Olley, Geoffrey Smart and Brett Whiteley to name but a few. Artist's Jean Bellette and Paul Haefliger bought a house there in which John Olsen lived for a time in the early 1960's. Hill End has one of the best Artist in Residence programs in Australia.

Twice winner of the Mosman Youth Art Prize, Street won a full scholarship to the Julian Ashton Art School, and has attained a degree in Visual Arts at Newcastle University, with Honours at The College of Fine Arts. Known for her expressive Australian Landscapes, Street’s work explores the relationship between representation and abstraction. We have several beautiful works by Belinda available for acquisition.
