Creative Portfolio



Holly’s artwork aims to use animal figures as a portal to a world of great transformation.

With multi layered backgrounds and rich colour and textures, she invites the viewer to immerse themselves in her work with the intention that it will serve their spirit.

Holly grew up surrounded by art, with her father being an artist and gallery owner.

She currently lives on the Mid North Coast of NSW, with her two young daughters and farmyard of animals

Holly begun exhibiting while still studying her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Melbourne and has exhibited nationally and internationally for the last 15 years in both group and solo shows.
