About the Artist:

Holly Edwards is an abstract and figurative artist. She has participated in numerous juried group shows, and had two solo shows in 2019 at the Atelier Ludmila Peterborough, and Art Gallery of Bancroft. She has participated in two artist residencies at Artscape Gibraltar Toronto, Luminous Bodies 2018, and Bareneed Newfoundland, Self-Directed Residency 2019.

Holly enjoys experimenting with various media such as acrylic paint, oil sticks, oil paint, ink, watercolours, gouache, pastels, and printmaking. During the pandemic she found herself exploring collage by repurposing paper studies from life-drawing, combined with various printmaking techniques, including Suminagashi, Lino, Collagraphy, Mokuhanga and Drypoint Etching.

This painting, Milkweed, explores Holly’s love for nature and abstract ideas. It was created after daily observations of Milkweed during walks in the winter season in the woods behind her Lakefield home.
