En plein air, Merimbula, NSW



Having originally trained as a doctor, Holly (previously known as Holly Norris) continues to practice part-time whilst pursuing life in the arts. She explores the extremes of what textiles can be, by innovative and experimental work combining fibre with ceramic clays and acrylic media, and layering shadow embroidery on sheer fabrics with other works. Drawing is at the core of all her work, and she enjoys finding and making her own pigments and dyes. Holly also works more commercially in digital textile print design and fine art printmaking.

She is a member of WESCA, The Society For Embroidered Work (SEW), and is featured in the Dorset Visual Arts book ‘Drawing on Dorset’.
