Kiff Holland has a gift for making the ordinary extraordinary, and the familiar fascinating. His passion for translating his observation into art, his ability to see beauty in the fabric of everyday life, and his intimate knowledge of the effects and power of light, have led to a large and diverse body of work.
Kiff competed his formal art training at the University of Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, South Africa, and at the Johannesburg School of Art. In 1975, he immigrated to Canada settling in British Columbia. He has received numerous awards for his work from the Federation of Canadian Artists, the Northwest Watercolor Society, and the American Watercolor Society. He has exhibited with the British Institute of Painters in Watercolor Society. He has Royal Society of British Artists and is a signature member of the American Watercolor Society, a distinction held by only a few Canadian artists. While pursuing his passion for painting, Kiff has also taught and mentored many professional and amateur artists through his work as an instructor in the IDEA (Illustration, Design, Elements and
Applications) Program at Capilano University in North Vancouver and in workshops in Canada, the United States, and Europe. Check out Kiff’s website at www.kiffhollandartist.com.
