Following in the footsteps of her mentors Holly is constantly challenging herself and trying to bring her art to the next level not just for her own high standards but also to know that her customers walk out the door with a piece of art they will be proud to show off as much as the pride she feels to have been commissioned to create it.
I have been a professional Tattoo Artist since 1994, working in a number of shops around the country and overseas. Drawing and illustration have long been essential creative expressions for me. The discovery that anything was possible through the application of imagination to a blank canvass immediately had me hooked.
I am influenced by various artists and movements throughout history, most notably the narrative artists of children's books and nature illustration, as well as the movements of expressionists, renaissance, and Ukio-e printmaking. I aim to engage viewers of all ages with works that are layered and complex while simultaneously being basic and universal.
Born and raised in the South West of the United States , and having traveled a great deal throughout the years, I have come to appreciate the style and flavor of americana and chicano art. Focusing my attention on themes of specific ethnic arts and letterforms. I am drawn to the subtleties and differences of visual communication, and the similarities and differences between cultures. I strive to stay versatile and maintain broad horizons, paying special attention to creating works that compliment the natural contours of the human body. I am interested in exploring and expanding my ability to communicate through aesthetic problem solving and experience, and to increase my vocabulary in multiple mediums...
