Life is complicated and each day brings new challenges. In contrast, painting gives Holly a special comfort; a unique pleasure that invites and invigorates.
Holly Burghardt uses knife and brush on canvas and board to blend colour with passion, texture with movement, and simplicity with intrigue. Vibrant acrylics coupled with mixed media infuse each piece with personality and dimension.
Holly’s work reflects the value of the moment, the richness of nature, the power of imagery, and the joy of discovering hidden beauty. Her hope is to connect with each viewer and share in the uncomplicated pleasure she receives from painting.
Holly Burghardt resides in the beautiful city of Calgary, Alberta near the majestic Rocky Mountains with her husband and children.
When not painting, Holly may be found shuffling her three active children to the hockey rink, dance studio and places in between. She enjoys travelling, hiking and walking, spending time with family and friends, reading, and thinking about what next to paint.
