LAKE CHARLES -- Emerging artist Belinda Y. Hughes invites Lake Area art lovers to experience the latest additions to her online gallery at

A 2009 Protegee' of Associated Louisiana Artists, Hughes is currently building her portfolio. Her Tanzanian wildlife pieces in graphite and charcoal, with accompanying cinquain poetry, were featured in the "Wild About Art" show at the Gallery by the Lake. Belinda recently began working in watercolor pencil. The first piece in this collection is the contemporary work, "Circus Plates & Super Balls," which symbolizes the sometimes-precarious balancing act of life.

Her photography includes images evocative of Southwest Louisiana, from shrimp boats at sunset on the Intracoastal Canal in Cameron, to a shadowy cypress swamp at Sam Houston Jones State Park in Moss Bluff. Other works range from Iowa railroad scenes, sunrises and sidewalks to the Bilbo Cemetery's Millennium Christ and Children with Dove statuary.

Mostly self-taught, Hughes is a member of Associated Louisiana Artists, Lake Area Photographers and foundmyself art communities.
