Hometown: Sheffield, MA
Australian-born Maria Holt creates mixed-media art that’s perfect for the lover of rustic goods. Although she hails from across the globe, this decoupage artist crafts with a distinctly American and European spirit. She hand-selects some of the most beautiful and interesting papers to create stunning yet practical home accents, including decoupage tissue holders, boxes, wastebaskets and more. Her paper-covered goods would make any space a bit homier!
All of Holt’s pieces are crafted from her 1835 Sheffield, Mass. farmhouse, where she surrounds herself with plenty of pets and books. Her art is very much inspired by the Northeast and the surrounding beauty of the Berkshires, and it fits in well in country and rustic spaces. Sugarloaf Craft Festivals is happy to host Maria Holt Designs at some of our upcoming juried art and craft shows. Make sure to check the schedule and artist lineup to see her work first-hand.
