About Holly

My journey on to the creative path of Art all started when I created Christmas card designs to send off to BBC One weather man Derek Brockway that was broadcasted three times throughout the week heading up to Christmas which that give me the confident boosts to produce my creative ability to do Art and Design along side Fine Art for my GCSEs that got my the grading of C+ this boost of confidence and knowing I got the skills and ability to create emotion and meaningful work and the help of my family behind me helped my move on further to develop my creative mindset at BGLZ Coleg Gwent, where 3 years of working with different materials and subjects lead me on to knowing I wanted to produce my career in Illustration and all the hard work paid off and helped me succeed my dream of going go university. Since I’ve started University at University of Wales Trinity Saint David I’ve gained  more knowledge and creativity while working towards set briefs and gaining my own unique style of Old school cartoonist that works traditionally in acrylic, ink and markers and also dabbles with digital to make vibrant character designs that puts a smile on your face. I’ve always aimed to do my very best work and with the help and knowledge from UWTSD I constantly strive to learn new tools to aid my work.
