About Holly

Although my background is in graphic design, I really love working with my hands and have been painting for the past couple of years. I like to work with acrylics, combined with other mediums on wood surfaces. Texture, layering, unexpected color combinations and capturing the human form are some focuses that get me excited when I step into the studio to create.

Thank you Holly, for the lovely comment on my "Rajathani Pots with Turquoise Door". Your "Farming in Dali" is very evocative...good luck! :-)

Hi Holly, thanks so much for your like and the encouraging note on my "crop circles" submission. As I'm sure you know, sometimes it's hard to break out of the analytical mind-set that graphic design cultivates (I'm also a graphic designer), so I'm really glad to have the push in these challenges to just have some fun with art! Your "Farming in Dali" submission checks all the boxes for me, it's so alluring – love it :)
