Studio Sale!


Moving is the worst! We haven't found a new place yet but we're getting close! The 'we' is my boyfriend and I (dun dun dun, the big move in together is happening). Anyways, I would love to sell a ton of stuff before the move June 1st. Make me an offer on anything... seriously. Check out KatieHolland.com and my past blog posts here to check out my work. There's a contact page on my site and my email is listed above in the flier. 

Thanks for looking! Treat yo' self to some new art.

The Art of Lisa Congdon

I've been REALLY into Lisa Congdon's art since I discovered her a few months ago via Instagram. Her work is bold, colorful, and evokes a playful and thought provoking mindset. 

This Lets Make Art print reminds me a bit when I first started taking intro design class at UCF, and gathering all the basic supplies to get going on various projects. 



 I'm also very drawn to her abstract work. From her Instagram it seems she works on multiple paintings at once and you can see a similar thought/theme between all the paintings but they are still very unique. It's a very cohesive series, which I need to take inspiration from as I've always had trouble with moving on to new pieces and ideas too fast.

Happy Friday! I wanted to share an artist I've been enjoying lately and hope you check her out.

A New Week

Hey you guys. Mondays, amiright?!? So anyways, 2 or so weeks ago I lamented about my artist block and decided to keep writing about it to help myself through it and it really did help! It helped to know I was accountable and needed to show I was working on something. I don't have a TON of followers here but I wanted to show I was working through the block. I think I got past it since I've been working steadily on drawings and collages since I last posted. I am planning on re-opening an online store for my work and will continue to apply to shows in the midst of apartment hunting and other various life events happening. Not sure when I'll have the shop open but sooner rather than later would be preferred of course. I still want art to be my only job but it's not realistic right now and not sure it ever will be? I'm a bit too realistic for my own good sometimes and it's no fun. 

I hope that didn't end this post of a negative note! Here's a photo of my cramped work table from Saturday night. I chugged some coffee and got a lot of little things that I had been meaning to do done.
