Holly was raised on an equestrian farm in the small town of Easton, Connecticut, now 'Lion Hill Farm.' At an early age, her formal training began under the teachings of Mr. Ray Quiqley, a renowned local Connecticut artist and illustrator. Country life inspired Holly's artistic talent. She has an undergraduate degree in Fine Arts from Southern Methodist University in Dallas, TX. While she studied at SMU, Holly majored in drawing and painting. After graduation, her career shifted to professional photography for several years. Recently, Holly returned to art as a profession, specializing in Equestrian portraits, family portraits, and children's book illustrations. In 2009, she illustrated "TAILS OF SWEETBRIER" and "CHARLIE THE HORSE." Both books are authored by her sister, Deanie Humphrys-Dunne. They will have a third book released soon titled "CHARLENE THE STAR." Holly's art has been featured in several local art shows. In addition, she has designed equestrian note cards, available for sale at local shops. Art has always been her passion, which she enjoys. Holly is a member of the Ridgefield Guild Of Artists.
