Holli Michener is an artist in the Dallas area, concentrating in painting.
She received her degree in 2005 and thereafter an internship with the Ellen Frank Illumination Arts Foundation in East Hampton, New York. For three months, Holli worked with other interns under Ellen Frank on some of the first “Cities of Peace,” paintings.
In 2007, she moved back to Texas to pursue art in her hometown and has shown work in various group shows around the DFW area.
Holli's painting, "Grr, Argh!" was one of 64 pieces selected by Ron English to be a part of the group show Surreal Salon 10 at Baton Rouge Gallery, 2018; her first out of state group show.
Conceptually, my work revolves around superstitions, myths, phobias and fears, especially confronting or overcoming them. I feel personal beliefs, whether conscious or unconscious, play a big role in how we interact with each other and how we have developed culturally. Trying to understand this dynamic holds enduring curiosity for me. Ultimately my goal is to create these concepts in a whimsy and weird fashion through the use of bright colors and surreal creatures.
