Artist Support Pledge paintings now sold

The Artist Support Pledge has been a wonderful way of supporting artists at this difficult time and a way for people to purchase affordable artwork under £200. These three works on acid free paper, were all mount presented in ivory mounts, with acid free backing board and cellophane wrapped.


Please check out my Instagram account @luisa.holden_artist for more details about #artistsupportpledge


I will be shortly uploading some further available works on paper, small canvases and boards.


Many thanks to my buyers for purchasing these pieces!

I am currently taking part in the #artistsupportpledge, which is an excellent initiative set up by Mattew Burrows (@matthewburrowstudio) - you sell work for no more than £200 and if you reach £1000 you pledge to buy from another artist.

Unfortunately but unsurprisingly this year's York Open Studios has had to be cancelled due to the Coronavirus outbreak. Thanks to the York Open Studios team for all their hard work and the excellent brochures and marketing undertaken, I am very much looking forward to York Open Studios 2021! Stay safe everyone.

Making the most of these daffodils before they disappear. Lovely to paint in bright yellows for a change, such a cheerful colour!

I am currently exhibiting with York Art Workers Association at the Pyramid Gallery in Stonegate York. Please do drop by and see this wonderfully diverse exhibition showing the work of many inspirational local artists. Exhibtion runs until 23 February and despite the roadworks, Stonegate is fully open for business. The Pyramid Gallery is at the Minster end of Stonegate, and also stocks wonderful local jewellery and ceramics.

I hope you all had a good Christmas and New Year and wish you all peace, health & happiness for 2020.


The start of the year has been busy preparing for the York Art Worker's Exhibition at the Pyramid Gallery in beautiful Stonegate, close to York Minster. More information to follow shortly.


I have also been busy sketchbooking and preparing for York Open Studios this April. Here is a recent piece.

As well as working from quick thumbnail charcoal drawings and watercolour sketches I like to do small painting studies which I can refer back to when tackling larger pieces. Here are some working sketches which will be on display at my Open Studio in the Spring.
