When we were first introduced to Holli, we were instantly drawn to her hand drawn elements and bold hues. So much of her work is inspired by colors, textures and shapes found in nature.
“There is so much to be inspired by in our time. Each of my collections develops from a single idea, color or specific shape and is molded into a cohesive grouping of patterns. Coloring within the collection is an essential component to the overall story."
From Holli's Heart to Yours
"I didn’t really set out to become a Fabric Designer. An acquaintance of mine told me about Spoonflower (an online, on demand, fabric site) when it was still Beta, in the beginning phases. I decided to try it out and after the first year I couldn’t stop, I was hooked! It was like a missing piece of the puzzle. I realized it was a large part of my passion as an artist and a unique way of expressing myself. In fact, when I was 5 years old, my sister and I were lying in bed trying to fall asleep. We asked each other what we think about before we fall asleep and I replied “I think of material.” Little did I know how much that would become my reality and how much my family would tease me because of it!”
It’s no wonder that, with a story like that, Holli has become one of our favorite designers. Her inspiration springs from just about everything around us - magazines, design blogs, and appreciating her natural surroundings. Holli truly captures design elements that make all of us awe in amazement.
I started designing textiles in 2008 and soon after began a working relationship with Boba. They truly value the artist so I feel extremely lucky to be part of their team and aesthetic.
When asked about projects she is proud of, Holli announced that Boba is something she is particularly proud of, and went on to say:
“The great thing about Spoonflower is how it opened the designing market right up! Because of this, I get approached by wonderful companies wanting to add my design style to their products.”
