Holly grew up in South London and worked as a sub-editor on Design Week magazine for many years before studying art. Holly has a BA (Hons) Fine Art Painting from the University of Brighton and BTEC Art and Design from Foundation City College, Brighton. Following several shows in England this is her first exhibition in New Zealand. Her practice is concerned with the stroke: spreading one stroke of oil paint on top of another, either to contrast colours or to ease the movement of the palette knife across the canvas or paper. Holly is a painter of people, both unknown and famous, often working from old black and white photographs.
