Welcome to the world of barb holmes


Take a look at my humorous and whimsical National Day  greeting cards.

My primary artistic focus is expressed through my experiments with cloisonne.  I use acrylic materials and wire to achieve interesting textures and shapes.  Check out my cloisonne home series, sacred series and Christmas series.

Very new are my experiments with Acrylic gels and skins.

Sewing is fun!  I made a set of vestments for my brother, when he was a missionary in rural Nicaragua.  I wanted them to feel joyous and be washable!  English smocking is an old art form - it is all about patience.

Enjoy my experiments with creativity - it is a potluck of media and ideas.

I love to make things
