Holly Mitchell

Artist Medium(s): 
  • Painting

Holly Mitchell is a British Canadian artist living in Pemberton BC.

She studied Textiles Design and Innovation at Loughborough University (in the UK) where she got a First Class Honours Degree as well as being selected for the New Designers 2019 London.

Her art is inspired by the colours found in nature. She works mainly with acrylic paint as she loves the blending and mixing of colours on canvas. Many of the paintings are made by adding several layers of paint, then scraping parts back, to create a rawness and depth to each design.

While Holly was travelling in Australia she learned about colour therapy and colours’ unique response to each person. Combining this knowledge, love for colour and inspiration from nature, she created thought-through colour palettes. Often adding gold foil or iridescent paint to create a dancing effect across the canvas.
