Chip Holton has created sketches, landscapes, watercolors, portraits, murals and sculptures and had built houses and designed buildings. Twenty years ago he met Dennis Quaintance, an hotelier from Greensboro who owned the Proximity Hotel and the O. Henry Hotel. When he was building the Proximity in 2006, Quaintance hired him to do all the artwork for the rooms--500 works of art--to be finished by summer's end. When he finished, Holton was hired to paint for the O. Henry and given the title Artist-in-Residence. To date, he has completed over 800 works of art for Quaintance.
