All of the work hanging in this show has been created inthe past 14 months… Elkins created artwork each week for the 52 weeks of her 52nd year. From November 2012 until October 2013 she devoted herself to following her muse, wherever the muse led her. She set out on her journey: printmaking, watercolor… acrylics and oil paintings… stained glass and graphite with colored pencil. Since the completion of that body of work she has found new direction, marrying many of her artistic “loves” in colorful abstract, geometrically inspired works. Navigating far afield from her usual black and white compositions she is now happily drawing and painting shapes and choosing colors that intuitively work together. With each creation she enjoys the knowledge that it IS about the journey, not just the destination.
Holly Elkins graduated from UNH, Durham, with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Painting, in 1985. She has been drawing, painting and working in linoleum as a printmaker for over twenty years. Late in 2012, she began working in mixed media and also returning to oil paints to further her personal artistic goals. Elkin’s work has often been representational, depicting floral imagery and landscape compositions. She is now creating work that delves into an inner space, drawing upon emotions and visions, exploring layers of color, shape and meaning. Holly has been a member of the NHAA since 1992 and has served on the Board of Directors of Exeter Fine Crafts as well as the Ammonoosuc Region Arts Council. Her work has been juried into the Currier Museum as well as many shows throughout New England and is found in private collections nationally.
