"Una gioia per gli occhi e una festa della creatività in cui il gusto per la scrittura incontra l’estro per l’arte e i piaceri del palato! Grazie a Tula, artista dai molti talenti, che con raffinata ironia ci ricorda l’inestricabile legame tra la mente e il corpo.” Simonetta Ferrini Palazzi Florence University of the Arts Florence, Italy

"I'm a chef by trade, so when my husband gave me Still Life with Apples, I was thrilled. It could be in a museum in Italy...it has that quality to it. So beautifully detailed with the light bringing it to life. I look at it with joy every day" Linda Kyllo Seattle, WA

I love the ocean. In this painting, I have uncorked a glass bottle which represents my memories. With my memories opened, I can remember what it felt like to spend the day at the beach.
"I commissioned Tula to paint my leather Mah Jong set, but she created much more. This painting sets a beautiful mood that reminds me of playing Mah Jong with friends. I especially love the light on the fruit. I smile when I see this painting and think of afternoons well spent with my close friends."
Alice Chang Redmond, WA
"One of my favorite paintings in my art collection is Mah Jong with Lillian by Tula Holmes. As always, Tula paints a story. The cup is from her mother's china. It subtly recalls home and family. To top it off, Tula gave the teacup to me to complete the presentation."

This painting was given to a veteran's family to honor their son who had served in Iraq.
"As a good son, I can confidently say that my mom is the best artist who ever lived. That said, you don't have to be her son to see the vitality she imbues into all of her outstanding work."
Bill Salisbury Seattle, Washington
This Mah Jong set was given to me by a friend. When we played, we would mix the tiles together, laugh and share our stories. Those afternoons were as beautiful as the roses in the vase.
This painting was for a friend who had been sick. The roses sit on a bible. The painting is a prayer for health.
"This piece is sexy, the wine, the lips, but it's also cozy. It's where a fierce woman lives. I read that you should only buy pieces or art that "stir" something in you, and I was definitely stirred by this piece. I was 24 and thought, 'I'm old enough to posses something valuable. I can handle it!'"
