After marrying her husband, Daniel Graham, and moving to Georgia, she worked as an executive assistant for an art collective where she also directed and curated an art gallery. The year 2006 brought Holly and her husband to Georgetown, Kentucky. She was employed by the Georgetown News-Graphic before she became a stay-at-home mother. Currently, she homeschools her two children. For Holly, 2017 signaled the advent of reclaiming her passion for drawing as she focused on putting forth her illustrations to the public. She and her husband wrote three children’s books that she illustrated. Her work has appeared in art markets in Lexington, Berea and Louisville as well as area art exhibitions. Holly greatly enjoys the fulfillment brought about by taking something inside of her mind or her heart and putting it onto paper or other tangible forms.
