Once upon a time, there was a girl, that from a very young age, loved to draw. Holly was her name, and she remembers receiving a gift, a set of pencils and a drawing pad. She will always think of that gift as the start of her artistic career. As a ten-year old, she liked to draw things like house plans. Maybe a little odd for a ten-year old, but artists don’t always fit the mold.
So in 1987, Holly graduated from the University of Arizona with a BFA in Studio Art & Graphic Design and moved to California. She worked for a couple of design firms specializing in the High Tech industry before venturing out on her own. Since 1994 Holly has been CEO of Holly Herick Design helping many small business owners find their identity. A few of Holly’s favorite things to create are logos, custom invitations, commissioned paintings in watercolor or acrylics and re-purposed painted furniture. Holly also enjoys teaching art to people of all abilities at her recent “Day Job” at the Studio at Living Opportunities.
Holly now lives in beautiful Southern Oregon with her husband and three children in a home she designed herself. I guess that ‘odd’ hobby paid off.Photo credit, Tim Tidball Photography
