Holley Flagg is an established watercolor artist, illustrator and graphic designer. Her style is impressionistic, with a strong graphic sense and a high-key palette. While she admires the classic watercolors of 19th and 20th century artists such as John Singer Sargent, Maurice Prendergast, Winslow Homer and John Marin, she often adopts a more lighthearted and whimsical point of view. Her recent work includes a calendar for the American Museum of Natural History; a landscape commission for Centreville Bank, RI, and a series of watercolors for the Cipriani Hotel in Venice, Italy, as well as many private commissions featuring landscapes, homes, gardens, and animals.
She is fortunate to live in New York City and Rhode Island, where her creative juices can be energized in the best of both worlds.
Holley Flagg studied art at The Art Students League, Smith College, Parsons School of Design and in Florence, Italy. Her work has garnered awards from the Art Directors Club, Graphic Design USA, American Institute of Graphic Artists, Desi, NYState Governor's Awards and Typografisme/Paris.
