Bio

PH Harbor Art Show - 2013Holly is a printmaker, artist and graphic designer. Her career as a designer and illustrator ranged from storyboarding Caddyshack and other movies and television to working as a magazine art director, advertising illustrator, a TV broadcast senior designer (at WTVT FOX13 Tampa) and as a Softimage|3D animator.

After teaching design at USF, IADT and both adult and youth art classes at the Dunedin Fine Art Center, she’s since been exhibiting as a professional artist, working on relief block printing and copper plate etching in her home studio, Studio Ibis. She is now a Master Artisan in the Roycroft Renaissance Artisan-At-Large, working in the revival of the American Arts & Crafts Movement with other printmakers and artisans and based in East Aurora, NY near the Roycroft Campus.

An avid sailor of traditional small craft, some of her block print work reflects her love for boating and Florida’s coastal water and birds, while her etching is more mythic and personal. Holly’s a gardener, making her yard more Florida friendly for wildlife using native trees plants and maintains a large vegetable garden with her mom. She lives with her husband, her mom and a big, weird mutt on a sprawling, sandy acre in Palm Harbor, FL.
