Holly Mabry Poole is a New Orleans native who attributes her creative nature to the city she grew up in. Art has always been a part of Holly’s life, but it wasn’t until 2005 that she started painting professionally. Holly views her creative ability as a way to give back to her community, as well. While New Orleans has been her main market for years, Holly looks forward to reaching others with her artwork.
As a self-taught artist, Holly draws inspiration from the natural environment, as well as the love and support from her family and friends. A symmetrical balance offset by asymmetrical flares can often be found in Holly’s work. Each layer of her designs portrays Holly’s optimistic outlook on life through the use of diverse textures, shapes, and colors.
