Holly Carr on Taking Risks & Resilience | Ep. 56 Optimistically Depressed

    • Mental Health

Artist Holly Carr sat down with Optimistically Depressed to discuss what it really means to put yourself out there and how she developed resilience in the risks she took. 

Holly has gained national acclaim for her unique style of silk painting. She has participated in numerous group and solo shows and continues to exhibit nationally.  She has designed for theatre productions and large scale public installations. Her most ambitious installation to date is a larger than life environment created out of painted silk, “Light in the Forest” for Acadia University Art Gallery.  Her work has been widely used in advertising and illustration, including her first children’s book “What is Pink”.  She presently is working on three new books and in recent years, she has branched out to performance art, where she paints large works live on stage.
