Hello and welcome to my website, WendyHoltArt.com!
For as long as I can remember, I have always loved to paint and draw, and over the years I have managed to “keep my hand in it”. I am mostly self-taught, however, did attend Portland School of Art, now known as MECA, and studied at the University of Southern Maine for drawing and painting. For a couple of years I was also part of a wonderful group of artists known as The Ateliers and learned so much from talented fellow artists and our wonderful instructor, Alfred Waterman. I have had the good fortune of exhibiting and selling pieces intermittently, but my art can take center stage as I am now fully retired and able to give more time and energy to my passion.
Hopefully, I’ve posted enough pieces thus far to give you a good overview of my style and the subject matter I enjoy painting, which include, but not limited to, seascapes, landscapes, florals, animals and portraits of children, in particular. Several of my paintings are available for purchase, as indicated, and I will accept commissions for acrylic paintings, portraits of your loved ones or your precious pets. I am able to work from photos for your portraits or pets.
This journey and process of creating my art continues to bring me joy and fulfillment, and it is my hope that something you see here will resonate with you and bring you years of enjoyment.
Thank you so much for stopping by and should you have any questions or requests, I can be reached at (207) 807-6348.
