This week's spotlight - Tina Holley
Tina Holley has been artist in residence in the Petrified Forest National Park, Arizona, and in the Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado USA, where she has also served as a jurist for the Artist in Residence programme. Tina has also had a solo exhibition in the International Museum of Art in El Paso, Texas.
She has hung her work in both solo and group exhibitions across the UK, much of her work reflecting her travels in the UK and further afield. From 2004 Tina ran her own gallery at the National Trust's Bodnant Garden in North Wales, where work can be seen all year round.
Tina is a highly regarded watercolour painter, known for her meticulous brushwork, for the way she captures the mood of the landscape and the feel of the places she travels. After many years in North Wales she is now absorbed in exploring fresh horizons from her new base in the Scottish Borders.
"A professional artist for over twenty years, Tina Holley is known for her realistic watercolours drawing on her fascination with the effect of light on the landscape and the celebration of trees in all their different guises through the year." Iain Loudon, Gallery Owner
