Veronica Holmes, Lowell, MA Member Since September 2007 Artist Statement I have been interested in art as long as I can remember. As a child growing up in Jamaica, rainy days were my favorite, that meant grabbing my pencil with paper, it's drawing time; my "man picking breadfruit" was "classic". I am self taught, I like to spend a lot of time observing the things of nature, people and their various expressions. I also have a great love for photography, it is exciting to capture expression or images that is frozen for ever. I see photography and painting as one in the same in terms of composition and the passion to be creative. Please enjoy viewing my galleries, as I enjoy viewing my fellow artists who are featured on this site.
