Resisting easy categorisation, Holmes could be defined as a fabric painter, fashion designer, textile artist, or a heralded wearable art designer. Her work shifted dramatically over time, selling hand-printed silk scarves and garments at the famous Brown's Mill Market in central Auckland in the 1970s, to a position as one of the most awarded World of Wearable Art designers in New Zealand. Holmes' career speaks to her adaptability and resourcefulness, her pursuit of enquiry and learning and the desire and motivation to be in the studio.
