Michael Holter

Michael Holter is an award-winning artist who works in watercolour and

oils whose paintings can be found in private and corporate collections in

the US and several countries around the world. Although Michael has

been painting most of his life, his work experience spans a wide range of

creative challenges. He has been an art teacher, creative director and

businessman in both fine art and commercial art. Michael has owned and

operated galleries and holds a Bachelor's Degree in Art Education and an

MA in Visual Communication.

Michael is a member of the Salmagundi Club, a signature member of The

National Watercolor Society, The American Impressionist Society, The

Watercolor Honor Society, The Transparent Watercolor Society of

America, The Outdoor Painter Society, the Southwestern Watercolor

Society, The Missouri Watercolor, The Society of Watercolor Artists and


His work is impressionistic but with an accurate structure of what is

recognizable but has the freedom, looseness and painterly quality that

makes painting so unique and expressive.

He has been influenced by artists such as Charles Reid, Richard Schmid, Burt Silverman, Frank Webb, John Singer

Sargent, Ted Nuttall and many others. Even though he has an art degree, most of what he puts into practice is self-

taught through studying the work of these distinguished artists and much painting.

He loves travelling with his wife as they enjoy the beauty of God's creation.
