Holly admits (like myself) she has a obsession with and takes inspiration from the very talented Beatrix Potter (click to view previous feature) which is evident in her fluid use of paint. "I paint because it makes me happy. I love the challenge of a brief, from coming up with the ideas, working on it practically and seeing the end result." Sourced Holly Exley Holly has a new and unique approach to the use of watercolour painting and has made the technique fresh, modern and fun.
Vintage Cutlery Collection
Holly loves painting unusual objects and it is these interesting collections that I have fallen in love with. Mundane objects from the everyday are creatively captured and turned into beautiful and intriguing works of art. Fresh tones, subtle colour palettes and watery washes combined with fine detail and an effective use of light and shade result in stunning and captivating paintings. I would love to commission Holly to paint a quirky collection for my home one day!
