Holly was born in the late 80s in a small town on Lake Huron in Canada. In 2009 she completed her BFA with a focus on sculpture from York University in Toronto. Deciding to spend a year traveling Holly landed in Dublin and was exposed to the illustrated works of Harry Clark, sparking a more vested interest in drawing. From Dublin, Holly settled in Vancouver to study graphic design, earning a diploma from Visual Collage of Art and Design.
Holly is interested in a diverse range of topics, including history, pop culture, feminism, and literature. She loves to travel and experiencing new places is her greatest inspiration. She is currently working as a graphic designer for Roxy Design and spending her evenings illustrating.
