Holly Graham is a Virginia native who earned a BFA from Longwood University. She has held professional appointments in the photographic, curatorial, and art management fields. Three books have been published featuring Holly’s illustrations and one book featuring her “New Life Doll Project” photographic series. Holly has participated in group, joint, and solo exhibitions in Virginia and Kentucky. She currently lives in Kentucky with her husband and two children, whom she homeschools while making art. 

Holly works in three main disciplines: illustration, fibers, and photography. Her creative motivation typically stems from a desire to: give simple moments a place of importance, celebrate the gift of family, bring forward memories or a feeling of nostalgia, reflect on/process what her faith is teaching her, cause a moment of humor or joy, or encourage others in a way that causes them to feel lighter.
