Holly lives and works in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
Her perception of things is expressed in a narrative, story-telling form. The style is cartoon-influenced, yet painterly; sometimes refined, sometimes crude. In recent years she has been moving toward a more Cartoon-Realist approach. She wants a simpler look, where she can get the utmost expression out of each line and each brushstroke expresses energy.
Her influences range from the scenes of everyday life pictured in the margins of medieval manuscripts, Late Medieval and early Renaissance art, Indian narrative folk painting, classic European Surrealism, Latin American Fantastic Realism and Mexican Social Commentary, comics and graphic novels. She draws her subjects from daily life, news stories, history, and her own vivid dreams.
