McLean, a North Carolina native, pulls people into her artwork by creating familiarity for the viewer. When looking at either her overseas work, or the art from right here in our own backyard, it is not uncommon to find yourself saying, "I've been there!". Holt studied at the International School of Painting, Drawing and Sculpture in Italy, and was greatly influenced by the European Masters. She adopted a classic style of her own that incorporates impasto style palette knife techniques which add texture and boldness to her paintings.
In a compliment to McLean’s work, we will also be including artwork done by myself, Carla Garrison, which feature architectural doorways of the past, the present and the imagination. The show will run from November 7-29 - don't miss it - I know I won't
