Meet the Artist
Chris Holmes is a self-taught artist who has been painting watercolors for over 30 years. His distinctive style of painting typically leaves substantial "white-space" in which the paper is untouched or he scrapes away parts of the paper to create texture. In 2008, Chris began having high quality prints made to display at art festivals. His prints are now on display and available at eight stores. Chris, a United Methodist pastor serving as the Annapolis area District Superintendent, is married to Margaret Holmes and the proud father of three grown children.
