CHERY HOLMES

During my career as an artist, I have had the pleasure of exhibiting in Canada, Europe and the United States in solo and group shows. My work can be seen in private as well as in the collections of the Canada Council Art Bank, La Musée d'art Contemporain and Galerie David Astrof. As one of the founding members of Powerhouse Gallery (the first feminist gallery in Canada), I learned the many fascinating tasks that come with running an art gallery. My images have been featured in several publications including Galerie, Girlfriends, Decormag, Canadian Women's Studies, Somerset Studio Gallery, Design Magazine and on the cover of The Gay & Lesbian Review Worldwide. They have been used as cover design art for eight novels. I have also created logos for companies such as General Woods & Veneers Ltd., Black Olive Productions and Flying Colors Life Coaching. My work has been purchased by interior designers to be displayed in their clients' homes.
Several of my illustrations have been licensed and my photographic images have been purchased for use by card companies such as Hallmark Canada.
 
The images shown here are grouped by style and subject matter and their details and are stated below each photo. Where the actual original piece of work has been sold, the image is still available for use. If a particular style appeals to you and you have a different image idea that you'd like me to try, it would be my pleasure to do so. I can be reached by email at: chery@ca.inter.net
It is with great pride that I present to you my art.
