About Carly Hollis
I am a self taught or experimental artist in love with colour, texture and light.
I've been experimenting with different mediums since I first started taking my art seriously in 2014. Along the way I've been painting with both fluid and heavy bodied acrylics, acrylic ink, alcohol ink, enamel, spray paint, resin, oil paints and resin.
After playing with all of these mediums I've found my favourite works to create are those which incorporate the texture of acrylics and free flowing nature of inks.
I'm drawn to using a lot of texture built up with layers of paint and texture paste.
My paintings are created through intuitive responses to each layers movement and feel. My process is completely organic and spontaneous.
My inspiration comes from the colours and forms found in nature. Living between the luscious Barrington Tops and the gorgeous coast of Port Stephens means I have a never ending diverse source of inspiration. My leafy green backyard where I spend time relaxing with my husband and playing with my 2 boys and furbaby is also a constant source of natural beauty, changing with the seasons.
