Artist Bio - Holley Ryan
I love pastels, acrylics, watercolours, all pencils. My style is realistic, painterly, I paint head and shoulder based portraits.
My artistic journey has led me on several paths throughout my life including graphic design / typesetter, commissioned illustrator, commissioned portrait artist and professional tattooer.
I love playing with colours, putting a vision to paper/canvas which ultimately changes as I create and comes together as a piece of art I've poured myself into. That is what art really is, a piece of yourself entwined into something magical I believe.
I am inspired by all things, colours, a thought, things people say to me sometimes spark ideas
