Holly Carmichael is a creative fine arts artist living and working in Antioch, TN. Holly's artworks are inspired by life, religion, philosophy, science, science fiction, evolution, humans and animals, astronomy and the cosmos. Dramatic skies, amazing weather events, geological treasures, and fantastic landscapes highlight much of her expressionist work. Being a nature lover, she engages the eye utilizing things natural to produce things that are sometimes other worldly, abstract or semi-abstract. Much of her work encompasses symbolism or meanings and values found in an array of sources while love is a common recurring theme. All of God's creations of Beings and things in the Universe of Universes is an amazing, infinite, inspiration influencing her work in one way or another. She uses both expression and impression as well as gestural and sometimes abstract styles and methods. In some pieces she leaves something to the imagination of the viewer, or she puts in something hidden to find. Her artwork is unique, bright, colorful, uplifting and beautiful.
