“John Holm fell in love with the sea at a young age while living on the North Shore of Oahu where he enjoyed beachcombing and snorkeling. Since then, life has taken him to Monterey, Friday Harbor, and Madison Avenue. After time as a surfer and art student, to a stint as a Navy pilot and a forty-year career in advertising, Holm returned to Seattle. His coastal memories became the images that were reborn in the form of acrylic paintings he calls “Surfscapes”. John also creates the reclaimed wood frames that complement the beach themes. Paintings sold in San Diego, Kauai, and Oahu.”
