During the month of March, we are featuring artwork from local artist Holly Beals! Stop by during Art After Dark on March 1, 2019 from 6-9pm to meet Holly and see her work. She will be doing a live painting demonstration during the event and her paintings will be up all month long.
Holly Beals Bio
After graduating from Chico State with a BA in communications, I worked as a graphic designer for six years. But new adventures were calling and I was blessed with the opportunity to teach conversational English to college students in Tibet. What a wild and beautiful ride that was, full of ups and downs.
One day, in my tiny teacher’s apartment, I grabbed some scrap paper, acrylic paint and magazine clippings. In the midst of a really rough day, painting was so satisfying and the perfect soul therapy. So began my love for mixed media painting.
Now, in the midst of yet another great adventure, being a mother to two young boys, I work most often with acrylics, gel medium and torn paper on wood panel. If I’m not in the studio, you’ll probably find me chasing after the two energetic littles, on a family jog with the double Bob stroller, or in my comfy pants, watching episodes on Hulu with the hubs.
