Holly Hess' Profile

About

Hello
My name is Holly Hess. After working in the theatre and designing custom period apparel for many years, I wanted to find a way to merge my training as a painter with my love for historical clothing. I see the human form as art, a canvas for wearable paintings. The wearer is the painting. I love painting with silk threads, layering them like brush strokes, playing with light, shadow and textured surfaces. I'm also exploring hand knitted design inspired by nature, art and history. I love faces and all things, mystical.
