Hello, my name is Holly, and I am an illustrator and surface pattern designer.

 

I graduated from Pratt Institute with a degree in Communication Design. I enjoy illustrating and have several published children’s books Mama’s Bayou, The Little “Read” Hen and The House that Witchy Built. (Pelican Publishing Company) 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

My medium of choice is cut paper collage. I was HOOKED on this medium at a young age when I viewed a Matisse exhibit of his cut paper work at the Smithsonian Institute. 

 

In addition to my freelance work, I teach art classes, and give  presentations.

 

 

 

 

 

I have lived in several states, and in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. I currently call Louisiana home.  It’s the place of the “Laissez les bons temps rouler”  -“Let the good times roll!”   

 

I live here with my husband, two children and a whippet named Tallulah.
