We are so pleased to have the unique and feminine work of Holly Wach available at Mignonne!
Holly was born in St Louis, Missouri in 1971 and that is where the normal Mid-western upbringing ends. Her parents being restless souls moved around from town to town until settling in Stuart Florida. Her mom an artist and dad a storyteller created a household filled with creativity and tails of adventure. Her parents have now joined forces to craft a successful chain of children’s books. With the support of two such creative influences she couldn’t help dream of adventure and far away places.
Growing up in a quiet beach town supplied the perfect setting to sit back, dream and draw. After High school she was off. She traveled to Europe, South and Central America, Asia, and back. All the time she was filling journals with images and stories. She took a break from traveling to attend college at the University of North Florida. Where, she received her BFA in Painting. Then, she was off again until landing in New York City where she received her MFA in Painting at the New York Academy of Art. New York provided the opportunity to study under and view some of the most important figures in the contemporary art world. She has recently switched coasts to Oakland, California where she devotes all of her time to making art and exploring a new place.
We are featuring original works, prints and cards of images by Holly Wach. We have a selection from her "Ink Ladies" and "Lions" to choose from.
Her Ink Ladies images evoke another era of vintage erotica, tastefully rendered. The Ink Lions reflect the many sides of this magnificent 'king of the jungle'.
Stop by and check out these wonderful pieces for yourself.
