Julie Holmes

Philadelphia, PA
(919) 880-8587

Julie Dyer Holmes is an oil painter. She is inspired by the song “Love Train” by the O’Jays. Why? Because this song speaks to a connectedness we all have as human beings.

Truth is, you would cover your ears if you ever heard Julie sing. Thankfully, she uses paint not notes to communicate a connectedness with others through her paintings. To that end, she paints nature, people, food and objects found in or near the home. Holmes loves to paint everyday objects and moments: a bright yellow lemon or a crispy red apple in the fridge, a fig ripening on the neighbor’s tree, or even eyes watering from chopped onions.

Ultimately, she hopes her paintings are a window where viewers can see the beauty and connectedness in the world.
