Holly Cannon

"I love to paint animals in almost any medium, but my new found love of pastels is where my heart is. I strive with every painting to be photorealistic, and I LOVE painting eyes. They are always the first to be painted in every piece. I want someone who is not an 'animal person' to love my paintings."

"While growing up, I loved to draw horses and dolphins all over my schoolbooks. After getting a degree in Advertising and a minor in Art, I hung up my pencils and raised a house full of kids for 30 years. After a hip replacement, I found my paintbrush again and have loved it more than ever. I took a workshop a year ago with my favorite artist and she introduced me to pastel painting. And now I have found my lane. With each painting, I learn something new about the medium and can't wait to start the next. I take lessons from a renowned local artist who helps me get unstuck in each of my pieces. Art class day is always my favorite day of the week!"
