Holly Sierra's Profile

About

I am a Magical, Mystical, Artist from beautiful Sedona, Arizona. I paint in acrylics on fine linen canvas or on Arches 300 lb test watercolor paper. I love detail and patterning and most of my art is decorative and fanciful in nature. For the most part an original painting can take me weeks or months to finish, so I rarely sell my originals.

I am most inspired by the ways of the ancient world- The Olde Ways! I am enchanted by the Elementals and the Wildlings. I love the misty forests and mossy hedgerows of the British Isles....Weathered barns, old farms and the earthy colored wool of bleating sheep and worn wooden spinning wheels. I adore honeybees, hives and am especially fond of old fashioned skeps made of bound grass. I love the Green Man’s ivy covered countenance and narrow Medieval streets paved with worn cobblestone.

I love all manner of books, new and old, leather or scrolls. And Celtic knots and Fairytales. I love the ‘Goddess’ in all her forms. I collect a myriad of Tarot and Oracle Card Decks. I adore Middle Eastern Bazaars with vendor’s touts echoing and melodious, mandolin music emanating from deep within dark alleys and from behind leaded windows. I love the flitting moths of summer about a candle flame, fireflies and the rhythmic song of the little tree frogs beneath the stars at night. I love tea and old musty houses, faded tapestries and sepia toned photographs of forgotten souls and times long ago. ( I miss my parents desperately! )

I am moved deeply by the adobes of the Southwest, by the Anasazi and the kivas and canyons. I adore archeology and all its revealed treasures. I am inspired by the magic that is loosely woven into the fibers of the everyday. And if I am painting for any cause at all ~ It is for the wellbeing of all the beasts and creatures of this Earth who depend on us for their survival.

You can find me painting beside a crackling fire or hiking on the Sedona Trails. Come and visit me at my website too! www.hollysierra.com
