Juliet Holmes a Court

Juliet holmes a court portrait

Juliet Holmes à Court is a Sydney painter who has been exhibiting regularly since 1991. Her work is about capturing the sense or feeling of her subject, and her paintings are often filled with light and movement.

With classes that are stimulating, at times challenging and always packed with information, Juliet says she teaches everything that she wished she’d been taught when she studied at National Art School, as a student.  “Good teaching is about giving – and for painting – it involves giving an understanding of the materials, of drawing, of brushstroke and composition and the history of painters that have formed our cultures.”

She has had 13 solo shows, exhibiting at the Australian Galleries, Sydney and Melbourne, Mosman and Manly Regional Galleries.  She has won the Waverley Oil Prize and her work has exhibited in the Archibald, Paddington, Mosman, Mornington Peninsula and Portia Geach Prizes,on numerous occasions.

She was awarded The Margaret Whitlam Art Residency as well as residencies at Arthur Boyd’s Bundanon and Heiflegers Residency in Hill End.

Juliet regularly teaches term classes and workshops at a number of art schools and has been associated with WWAS for twenty years. She has, for over 15 years, lectured and given workshops at the AGNSW.
