“Who’s Counting” solo exhibition at Paul Smith, Albemarle Street, London

Painting and printmaking, jewellery, weaving, ceramics, metalwork, glass and stonemasonry are all on offer from a range of established and emerging creators.
Makers House, Burberry
Britain's finest makers, curated by The New Craftsmen, brough Burberry's latest collection to life through installations, demonstrations and live performances. Holly was the featured fine artist at the house, painting miniature portraits of visitors from inside her very own gabardine tent.
Andrew Martin collaboration
Holly was invited to collaborate on a collection with international design house Andrew Martin. Using Holly's paintings and designs, Andrew Martin developed fabrics, wallpapers and cushions featuring everything from flocked penguins to velvet lions with a veritable (actual!) Noah's Ark of animal paintings in between.

Last year designer-turned-artist-turned-judge, Nicole Farhi, invited Holly to exhibit three of her portraits of old Masters on the walls of the Mall Galleries. We are delighted to announce that Holly has been selected for exhibition again this year with her bronze wall-sculpture entitled ‘Rembrandt’s Palette’.
