 Pat Holland - A Profile

A summer storm over Fife, the Bass Rock seen across a field of poppies in the East Neuk, West Lomond on a spring day in the Howe of Fife, a cabbage patch in mid winter in south west France - the moods of nature captured with a dynamic palette that changes to reflect the changing seasons.

Pat paints in oils taking much of her inspiration from her local landscape. Her work is characterised by a distinctive use of paint in a bold impressionist style working mainly with a palette knife.

The mood of her work ranges from tranquil to vibrant. She is particularly attracted to the elements of pattern and form and the way in which light and shadow shape what we see around us.

Her love of colour has been an inspirational element in her recent flower paintings which are characterised by a bold application of paint and strongly textured images.

Pat lives and works in the small hamlet of Giffordtown in the Howe of Fife in Scotland with her husband, Ian Ledward.
