Nature in Detail : Botanical Art
Most of Holly Fritchman's exquisite artwork is inspired by nature. From intricate portraits of a single acorn to gorgeous landscapes of an autumn marsh, her work draws one in with its elegant beauty.
Fritchman describes "each art experience as a gift of time...every time I pick up my brush or pencil, I see something new." Balancing the fine detail of watercolor and pencil with the looseness of oil painting keeps her energized and curious.
Self-taught in the mediums of pencil, watercolor and oil, she has studied at the Humboldt Institute in Maine with a focus on watercolor botanicals. Her textured, atmospheric landscape oil paintings were inspired by the Hameau Art Studio in Belleville, PA.
Widely exhibited in area galleries, Fritchman is also a member of the Farmland Preservation Artists of Central Pennsylvania. She values the opportunity to appreciate local farmlands and to support conservation measures by giving a portion of her art sales to the conservation cause.For more information about Holly Fritchman and her work, visit: http://hollyfritchman.com/
