Maggie Holmes

Maggie is an abstract painter who also enjoys drawing and photography. As a mature student she completed a Fine Arts Degree at Wolverhampton in 2011. and exhibits regularly with several groups of artists in the Midlands.
Since her move from Stourbridge to Stratford upon Avon in 2011 she has joined a Painters Studio Club at Warwickshire College of Arts in Leamington to make new contacts and extend her work.

Maggie is interested in mark making and the physicality and unpredictability of paint and through colour and mixed media explores her awareness of herself and the world around her.

She is concerned with the human condition and the natural world and the tensions that dualities can bring about. Consistently over recent years her focus has been on the curved line and circle; for her a form of unity and completion and of the spiritual.

Maggie still works in a small way as a counsellor and psychotherapist and feels that this work, combined with her creativity have been integrated into her current practice.
