Cas Holmes is interested in the connections between land, place and environment. After obtaining her degree in Fine Art she received awards from the Winston Churchill Trust and the Japan Foundation to study paper and textiles in Japan and India. Exhibiting and working internationally on community and educational projects she develops  an individual response to process and ideas. Her works combine mixed media with found materials and stitch and are best described as ‘painting with cloth’. This is reflected in her publications the most recent being ‘Stitch Stories’ (2015) ‘The Found Object in Textile Art’ (2010),  and co-written ‘Connected Cloth.
