Sigrid Holmwood (November 19, 1978) is a British/Swedish artist and works in London. She was educated at The Ruskin School of Fine Art and Drawing, University of Oxford (BFA, 2000) and the Royal College of Art, London (MA in Painting, 2002). Her paintings are historical re-enactments of the work of a painter of peasant life, referencing sixteenth century genre-painting and nineteenth century impressionism. She makes her own handmade paints according to historic recipes. She uses traditional materials and techniques in a playful manner, for instance combining fluorescent pigments with egg tempera.
