holly farrell

Self-taught artist Holly Farrell has the incredible ability to portray everyday objects in a new light - Initially she copied drawings and designs onto wood, cans or bowls, teaching herself the qualities of paint, mixing, and brushwork. Within a year, Holly began to draw on her own, choosing subjects from her day to day life: the bowls, chairs, and tables that were necessary tools for living. Not knowing any other way to paint, Holly would transfer her drawings onto board and use the same technique for painting that she applied to wood and metal. This involved many layers of paint, acrylics and oils bound together by even more layers of varnish.
