Featured Artist CARMEN HOLLY
October 2012

It is with great pleasure that I introduce our Featured Artists for October – Carmen Holly
Subtle, beautiful work, infused with thought and story, poetry and imagination.
Carmen is a breath of fresh air – she blends textures and forms together and comes up with…..well, nothing more than complete magic !!!!
I hope you enjoy looking through the examples here, and I would you to join in and add your favorites of hers as well….
Stroll though her creative portfolio and enjoy and be inspired by this wonderful woman’s work…

Carmen Holly in her own words -

How to describe my work? I just love to create & try all the different mediums of creativity.
I draw inspiration from all things..music, movies,
books, news, All of you here on Red Bubble & life as it is.
I never have a plan. Just open one program or another & go with the flow.
My husband talked me into my first computer in 2002 & after many sleepless
nights learning PaintShop Pro & Photoshop from the talented others on the interent,
I have been hooked on digital creating ever since. He then talked me into my first
camera. Taking photos and manipulating them has become an obsession.
This digital age is such a fun way of creating.
To be able to see others work & share ideas, being pushed
into new ways of doing things …makes it an endless journey of the mind.
I appreciate this Honor of being the Monthly Featured Artist in Altered by Imagination.
I was asked to pick my Favorite work.. but I must leave that up to you.
I have always prefered others work on my walls. When I finish a work.. under the bed or in the closet it goes.
Hugz to All who have left compliments & Faved my work!

Since Carmen has left it up to us to pick a favorite for her, I would like to start with this one :-

Then the fragile beauty of this one…

I loved this one..a combination of mediums..

And the purity of this is breathtaking!

Finally, the lure and mystery of the mask is compelling!

Join in with us this month and celebrate this artists work!
