Born and raised on the central coast of California, Holly moved to San Francisco at the start of the Flower Child era. There she learned the new techniques of hand painting on fabric. Over time she added silk screening, overlays, and stitching to invest her fabrics with dimension and complexity. As a nod to her textile origins, she is now piecing in a patchwork style, collaging scraps and cuttings accumulated over the years.
Holly lives in Marin County, California.
