About Holly Smith

As a Maine native, Holly has always found inspiration in the ever-changing beauty and moods of her surroundings.  Painting is a natural expression of her creative vision, and she strives to show others the meaningful, healing tranquility that the Maine landscape offers through colors, shapes, and compositional relationships.  She frequently takes the opportunity to experience her locale by travelling to remote island destinations or simply stepping outside her house.  In these natural environments, she absorbs the spectacular views of the coastline with its inlets and rolling hillsides, feels the energy of the vegetation and rocks, and smells the sweet aromas of the fir trees and flowers.  Her interpretations of these experiences offer glimpses of Maine’s magnificence, heritage, and romance and give her paintings a truly authentic quality.
