Hello there! I am Kristi Holland, wife to Matt, and mother to our two precious children. I love to spend time with my family, explore the mountains when we have time for vacation, and I love to paint. That is why you are here and I want to share my story with you.
I have always loved art. From the time I was in elementary school through college I took as many art classes as I could. Oklahoma State University is like another home to me and I graduated from there with a degree in Child and Family Services and minor in Studio Art. Soon after college, Matt and I got married and our daughter arrived a year later. I needed something to do for myself. I had dreamed of being an artist when I was younger, but never really thought I could make that work out. So one day I picked up my brushes and started to paint. One of my best friends ended up asking me to paint a few pictures as wedding gifts and all the sudden there was a flood friends and family who needed gifts as well.
That was almost three years ago. My style is continually changing as I learn new techniques and as I find what I am truly passion about. I started with lettering and painting watercolor wreaths for about 2 years, then I decided to drop the lettering and just paint flowers. One customer asked for a wedding bouquet and that sparked something in me. I remember LOVING my wedding bouquet and I kept it for as long as I could. It was dry and any time I tried to move it more pieces would crinkle and fall away. On the other hand, paintings can last forever. Paintings can hold all kinds of memories. A painting can capture the bouquet you held as you walked down the aisle to the love of your life. It can capture the puppy that you brought home and raised for 15 years and who was your best friend. It can capture the home you grew up in that holds all the memories of your childhood.
I want to help you decorate your walls with memories that will last a lifetime.
