Katharine Holmes (b. 1962) is best known for her paintings and drawings of her native Yorkshire landscape. A graduate of the University of Newcastle upon Tyne she returned in 1990 to live and work in the Yorkshire Dales.
She paints outside in all weathers and currently works from her studio at the Malham cottage where her mother and grandmother lived and painted before her. This heritage was explored recently in the exhibition Katharine Holmes: In Grandmother's Footsteps at the Mercer Art Gallery, Harrogate 2017.
Beyond home and the familiar Katharine Holmes paints the wilder fringes of Britain and Ireland especially the Highlands and Islands of Scotland.
Widely exhibited and collected her work is in many private and corporate collections including that of Leeds University where she was given her first major solo exhibition in 1999 and the Mercer Gallery, Harrogate.
