For as long as she can remember, Holly has been making things with her hands. As the child of an artist, creative solutions always came first. Why buy it at the store when you can make it yourself, upcycle something from the thrift store, or drag it out of a dumpster and give it a fresh coat of paint? Inspired by her mother’s resourcefulness and her own personal drive to acquire new information almost constantly, Holly is always learning something new. Nothing thrills her more than sharing what she has learned. With more than ten years’ experience teaching arts and crafts classes Holly is an experienced instructor of classes ranging from sewing to mixed media with equal parts patience and enthusiasm.When she is not learning a new skill or polishing an old one, you can usually find her and her dog hiking in the country or snuggled up on the couch with her husband and their menagerie of pets – two cats, two dogs, and a guinea pig. By day, Holly is an office bee and after hours, she hustles as an indie artist.
