Holly Van Hart's latest painting series is all about possibilities. So is her life.
She is passionate about the possibilities and potential within each one of us. She is a walking example of her belief that we all have the power within us to chase our passions.
She has recently left her successful high-tech career in the telecommunications industry and is now exploring the possibilities that come from being a full-time artist. She is dedicated to spending several hours a day in her studio and then at night while the kids are doing their homework, she spends time on the business side of her art that she calls her "homework." A recent home remodeling project included an art hanging system that transforms the family living space into a personal gallery of her latest creations.
