Holly Bedrosian 

 


 

Boy at the Beach by Holly Bedrosian was selected as FAV 15% in the January 2017 BoldBrush Painting Competition.

 

Biography

 

Born in Massachusetts in 1975, Holly Bedrosian is a self-taught artist living and working in Salem, NH. Holly's fascination with drawing faces began at a young age, when she began creating portraits of family and friends. Though she continued to sketch throughout college, Holly elected to focus her studies on the sciences, completing a bachelor’s degree in physics from the College of the Holy Cross in 1997. She went on to work as an engineer for the next ten years, but the desire to pursue her interest in the arts was always present. In March of 2007, she changed careers to become a self-employed artist. Since taking the plunge to pursue her dream, she has never looked back. With a keen eye for subtleties in faces, Bedrosian focuses on realistic portraiture and figurative fine art, and believes that capturing the subject's personality and character is of utmost importance.


Artist's Statement
 
In every ink blot and cloud I see a face, and faces themselves are a source of unending fascination to me. I appreciate the intricate nature of the complex contours that comprise the face, but most of all I am passionate about how the parts come together as a whole to create a personality, character, and evoke the essence of the subject. Whether creating a portrait, figure, or still life, I work in a realistic style to capture the subtle details that lend character and personality to the subjects.
