Martha Holmes

Martha graduated in 2018 with a BA in Graphic Design from Falmouth University. She now lives and works in Falmouth and is a landscape and still life painter.


'I am a painter living & working in Cornwall, working both plein-air in the landscape and from my studio in Falmouth. My paintings are a reaction to the coastal environment which has always surrounded me, frequently inspired by the abstract and modern direction many of the St Ives Artists brought to the West of Cornwall. Fascinated by the shifting identity of both the north and south coastlines, my work is a reaction to the changing light, structures and colours that surround me whilst I paint.

Process and the space I work in has always been important - working directly within the landscape allows an immersive experience, reflected in the brush strokes and energy of the work, which I have begun to translate into my still life studies.
