Virgil Holmes is an outdoor enthusiast and environmental scientist with 40 years of experience. His experiences afield are the inspiration for his art. His studio/workshop is 460 square feet, with a full complement of woodworking equipment. Above the workshop is his 260 square-foot art gallery, peacefully located at his residence on a 400-acre farm east of Dover.
"Few people are privileged to observe native wildlife interacting with each other and their natural environments. My art is designed to capture an ongoing action, in contrast to a static image, and cause the viewer to imagine the rest of the story. I apply bronze powders or other finishes to my work to mimic high-end, lost-wax bronze sculptures and their applied patinas."
