HI! I'M HOLLY! :)
Born and raised in Trinidad & Tobago, I always had a deep love and appreciation for fine art. From a young age, arts and crafts were my favorite pastime, and it was evident that I had a natural talent for it. However, as I grew older, I was torn between my love for art and my academic abilities in math and science. I ultimately decided to pursue a career in nutrition and dietetics, as it seemed more practical at the time and I had a strong desire to learn more about the impact of nutrition on disease.
As a healthcare worker during the COVID-19 pandemic, I witnessed firsthand the devastation and loss that the world was experiencing. The constant exposure to death and despair took a toll on my mental and physical health, and I found myself yearning for a different life, one that offered more freedom and flexibility.
Amidst the chaos and uncertainty, I decided to pursue another one of my passions, painting. I have experimented with various forms of art, from crocheting to card making, but it is painting that truly captured my heart because it is very welcoming and forgiving. I love abstract art because it allows me to express myself freely without any limitations or expectations.
My paintings are a reflection of my innermost desires and emotions. I use an array of colors, from bright and vibrant hues to soft and subtle tones, to convey a sense of healing, inspiration, and child-like play. Each piece is created to evoke feelings of joy, peace, and tranquility.
My art is not just a mere collection of paintings, but a testament to the strength and resilience that comes with embracing change and finding freedom. It is a reminder that no matter how chaotic and unpredictable life may seem, we always have the power to invite love, joy, and happiness into our lives.
I hope that my paintings inspire and uplift you, just as they do for me. Thank you for taking the time to appreciate my work, and for allowing me to share a piece of my heart and soul with you.
