In Her Element | Holly Keogh’s Thoughtful Mixed Media Pieces

COTY_Skyline_cyrus_2

Although Holly Keogh grew up in a home of artists –  her father was a musician and her mother worked as a textile designer and painter – she was unsure of her own ambitions.

Her family moved from the U.K. to Charlotte, N.C. when she was a young girl and she attended arts-focused schools but always considered her own creative pursuits more of a hobby than a vocation. A year after enrolling in college to study communications, she was miserable. Holly switched majors to art and embarked on a journey to Cape Town, South Africa to uncover her own inspiration and process for creating. There, she drew inspiration from childhood memories and feelings of being at home in two different continents to create her beautiful mixed media pieces and painted portraits.

Now back in the States, Holly works in Charlotte, N.C. out of Slate, a furniture and arts collective.  You can view more of her work here.
