artist statement

Monnie Holmes, a gifted local artist creates beauty with brushstrokes. Sharing acrylic and watercolor paintings with others she follows in the footsteps of her grandfather who was a master at painting murals in homes, business buildings and churches. Her other grandfather wrote for the New York Times and owned a newspaper.

Painting original scenes of seascapes, waterfowl, and flowers, she grants her patrons art that is easy on the eye.

Taking we the viewers to faraway magical places, she paints in traditional, pastoral and contemporary themes.
