Elinor Holmes was born and raised in Owen Sound, Ontario. After living in the Cambridge area for fifteen years, she moved to Southampton in 1972. Elinor took many classes and also studied privately with some of our leading art teachers. She works with encaustics using hot beeswax and oil paints, acrylics and pastels to realize her artistic vision. Elinor finds inspiration for her art in the world and people around us.
"Elinor was a lovely lady who did a great job for the 3 of us that went together from Inverhuron. She is a joy."
"Elinor was very helpful and full of creative ideas. She didn't hover, but if I had a question, she answered it well. She was generous with her materials and I would visit her studio again."
"I enjoyed my class with Elinor. She was knowledgeable, helpful, and generous."
