Fred Holman started painting in 2005. What began as an interest in refining his drawing skills turned into a passion for exploring the joys of nature and the challenge of the inanimate objects through painting. He is a Landscape Architect and Planner by profession, so the outdoors and creating beautiful, functional spaces have been part of his life for over 40 years. A graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design Painting and Drawing Certificate Program in 2007, Fred obtained the knowledge needed to use his natural talent in his paintings. He has explored many mediums, but today oil is his preferred medium to paint still life, portraits or landscapes. While much of his work is done in his studio, he enjoys plein air painting as well. Fred’s studio is located on the Schroon River in Brant Lake, New York.
