Mike Holmes Artist

Fine art, illustration, cartoons and caricatures

Hi and welcome to my art website. For fine art I paint with acrylic on canvas, watercolor, and pencil on paper. Subjects are mainly seascapes and flowers. Email Mike for individual painting prices.

The seascape illustrations are digital. I use Adobe Illustrator and make prints. My goal is to illustrate much of Buzzards Bay, Vineyard and Nantucket Sound that I have enjoyed viewing for most of my life.

Illustration prints are individually quoted and are on archival quality paper, giclee printing. Example: 20×16 @ $250 plus framing, MA sales tax, and shipping. Email Mike with a desired size, whether framed or not, I’ll put together a quote, if you decide to purchase I’ll email a PayPal invoice and ship artwork when payment is received.
Payments are handled through the PayPal website.

About Mike Holmes

Thanks for visiting my fine art and illustration website. My studio is in Stoughton, MA.

For fine art, I work with acrylic on canvas mainly of seascapes of the Buzzards Bay, Vineyard Sound, Nantucket Sound area where I have spent many years sailing. I also enjoy painting flowers, landscapes, people and pets. I work with watercolor and pencil on paper as well. I started using Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop to illustrate my favorite seascape scenery a few years ago when I tried it for fun (I’ve used the software for decades commercially) I was happy to be able to achieve the results I was looking for. As a visual arts major in college I was in England for a year which enabled me to study the masters at all the London museums as well as visiting museums in France, Italy, and the Netherlands. Over the years I have received awards in various art shows and shown in galleries such as: The Copley Society in Boston, Norton Gallery in South Dartmouth, Island Gallery in Vineyard Haven, and South Street Gallery in Hingham.
