Your path is not a straight line. Obstacles do not put you off your path. They are your path.
In every medium I work in, whether print paint jewelry artful illumination etc. Accidental beauty inspires me. My process is about exploring interactions of Chance and control, coincidence and intent. What if I do this then letting go to see what happens. It is what keeps me coming back. Always creating new moments to explore. Intuitive expression
My work rests on my practice as a librarian. Books and library culture inspired assemblages which examine the disciplines of agriculture and nature using materials with properties that resist manipulation and challenge the expectations of the viewer, yet promote an exchange of ideas, bridging my artwork with my journey through Libraryland.

'...the question is never: what am i looking at? the question is: what do I see?'
I have created a way of making work that combines my interests in art, nature & science. Nature informs & directs my eye; close observation & awareness of the moment, as well as shifts in light, color & atmosphere, feature prominently in my work.

I mostly work with color and texture in my paintings. They deal with transparent layers of color laid one on top of another creating an inner luster that has a jewel like quality to it. I combine this with texture and different materials creating a spatial composition that is intriguing to the eye.

My mixed media pieces combine pen & ink drawings, liquid acrylic, colored pencil, my own handmade paper, bits of collage and the occasional wire. I experience a playful awareness in the immediacy of making them. My objective for the viewer is to engage the imagination and evoke a sense of joy.

My inspiration comes from the world around me. From the woods of the White Mountains to the raptors of the Connecticut shoreline, the textures and patterns of nature guide all my paintings. I find the corrosion from rust and patina to be a fitting medium with which to portray images of beauty as well as destruction.
Holly Whiting uses acrylics and reactive metals in her paintings of birds of prey and in her abstract landscapes. The rust and patina created by oxidizing the metals in these paints create works of rich depth and texture. Holly has shown in several juried exhibitions, both here and abroad.
