About Holly Lombardo

I guess you could say, I've been a painter my whole life.... I just didn't know it. I am a self taught artist who has painted with watercolors for almost 15 years, and more recently, acrylics. I started painting as a hobby in college, mostly renderings of houses for realtors as closing gifts, and some general landscape/still life subjects as time allowed.

As my career has changed and free time has appeared, I have painted creatively almost daily now for 2 and a half years, and have recently started to show my work to the public (since Spring 2007). I now graciously have the free time to paint subjects that inspire me. I enjoy capturing light and shadow, and always challenge myself to try something new and improve my own technique. I find inspiration in nature as well as familiar objects, and continue to be amazed at how effortlessly paint will glide over a paper surface, depositing colors and implying shapes.

I am inspired by the masters, including Sargent, Hopper, Wyeth and of course, Monet, Cassatt and Renoir, to name a few. Painting is a passion, and I find now that when I look out the window, I am already thinking about which colors I would use to capture the sunlight on a tree, or a shadow on the ground. It is a passion, and I learn something new with each painting that I do.

I am a member of the Concord Art Association (CAA) and the National Watercolor Society (NWS).
