In today’s conversation I talk to Holly Guertin about working as an artist in a secular environment and how to continue approaching art with a God-centered lens even if your space doesn’t encourage it. Holly is a fiber artist who studied Fibers at the Savannah College of Art and Design and now lives and works outside of Philadelphia, PA, with her husband and their four sweet boys. She loves tickle fights and rolling laughter with the boys, anything that lets her work with her hands. Holly loves to create sculptural, textural art pieces to add dimension and interest to beautiful spaces. She explores the qualities of wool by mixing different textile processes to create one of a kind pieces. By investing great time into these laborious processes to develop such unique surfaces, the art pieces become treasures to behold.
Holly has designed for companies like Lilly Pulitzer, Marie Oliver, Lilies and Loaves, HIHO, and Sail to Sable, collaborated with Anthropologie, has written for Verily Magazine and Style Me Pretty, and assisted in photo styling for Martha Stewart Weddings and BHLDN.
