Page Holland


Painting what she lives….“I am endlessly fascinated with the canyons, rivers, mountains and deserts of the Colorado Plateau.” Page paints both intimate nooks and vast vistas. Some are views 100 miles deep. Her atmospheric perspective is impeccable. Is that really a mountain in the distance, that little fleck of pale, pale blue at the horizon? And those red-rock cliffs in the foreground…they can nearly give you vertigo. Look how that little squiggle of a canyon opens to a meadow, meanders to the river. Don’t get lost in there…  She also paints subjects as diverse as horses, cowboys, cowgirls,  wildlife, oil-field drill rigs, miners, old trucks, or flowers… the common thread is the Colorado Plateau.


This high-desert 4-corners area of Utah, Colorado, Arizona and New Mexico is country that was home to her pioneer ancestors. Life here is a life both hard-won and beloved. Page says, “The desert etches a patina on everything, without exception. Given enough time, anything will become pure abstract perfection here.”  Western motifs and horses often figure prominently in her paintings. Page has been a horsewoman all her life, she and her husband own 10 horses (and counting), most raised from foals.  "Horses in my paintings must look like horses...good horses, like the ones I ride."  Page’s preferred medium is oil on canvas. She discovered a natural affinity for oils while taking college level courses at the age of 12. Basically self-taught, she is also proficient in watercolors, acrylic, pastel, pen and ink and graphite. Page loves to paint on site, but much of her subject matter is very remote. She is often riding, jeeping, hiking or boating with a bevy of cameras to bring reference shots back to her studio. A champion for arts and artists in Moab, Page has spent innumerable volunteer hours with The Canyonlands Arts Council, The Moab Film Commission, Hollywood Stuntman’s Hall of Fame, The Dan O’Laurie Museum, Moab Community Theatre, The Moab Movie History Museum, The Moab Studio Tour, Moab Art Walk and Moab Arts and Recreation Center. She is currently the President of the Board of Directors for the Gallery Moab Artist Co-op.  Page has been featured in articles in Western Artist, The Los Angeles Times, The Chicago Tribune and on television news programs in Salt Lake City. She was one of 29 artists chosen to paint a 9-foot puma sculpture for the “Pumas On Parade” project in Durango, CO. in 2006. Her entry was purchased by the City of Moab and graces the outdoor courtyard at the city office complex. Page is a juried member of the Oil Painters of America.
