Holly is a native Rhode Islander who is most comfortable by the water.
She has been a surface pattern designer for over 30 years. Her parents worked in the textile industry so she was always surrounded by pattern and color. Holly had no formal training but started painting patterns in repeat right out of high school. She worked for some of the area's largest textile companies until they went out of business one by one during the recession of the early 2000's.
She is now a freelance designer and consultant. She creates original artwork for home decor companies as well as for private commissions.
