Biography


Holly Wolfe an award winning artist likes to paint a variety of subjects, although she is most passionate about portraits and plein air landscapes. Holly is inspired by the countryside, which is what drew her to paint en plein air.

Holly has been interested in art from an early age, remembering weekends with her grandmother, coloring in color books and paint by number paintings and on through art classes in high school and college. Upon retirement Holly pursued art full time and has perfected her skills through workshops from master and award winning artists such as Jeffrey Watts, Dawn Whitelaw, Lori Putnam, Roger Dale Brown, Ken Dewaard and Sue Foell.
