I make art that celebrates life. The connections between my lungs, which bring air into my body, and the systems that keep the beetle alive
-- the beetle that is crawling across my windowsill at this very moment, seem so close. Everything feels fresh and fragile and full of humor around me, and that sense of empathy is translated into everything I make.
Limiting the environmental impact of my artwork and products is a high priority. Prints and packaging are made from recycled materials, original works of art are created using reclaimed materials, and more. My goal is to run a guilt-free studio and business.
My name is Steph Holmes, and I am an artist living and working in York, Pennsylvania. I earned my BFA at Millersville University in 2012 and in 2014-2015, I completed a Post-Bacc program at Syracuse University. Additional places I've traveled to study include Chautauqua Institute (VACI), Haystack Mountain School of Crafts, and Penland School of Crafts. Today I work as the Director of Education at Creative York, a non profit arts organization working to connect people with their creative selves in downtown York, PA. You can find my work for sale online, at my studio space in downtown York, PA, or in galleries and shops throughout South Central PA.
