2020 Artists


Holly Monroe

My mission is "to feed the soul by making meaningful words beautiful." As a third generation calligrapher, my goal is to create 'art with words' that have meaning and value to people. During the 40 years that I've been a professional lettering artist, I've designed for the greeting card and gift market, licensing designs. For individuals, I've created favorite quotations, invitations, custom wedding vows and marriage contracts, family trees, high end one-off books (current clients' book is $150,000. lettered/illustrated) and invitations. For businesses and churches - logos, decorative resolutions and awards, mission statements and I have even lettered on walls. From all of this, I have developed a line of greeting cards and gicleé canvas reproductions, affordable to all.

My specialties are originals on fine art papers, handmade papers, paste papers (colorful) and genuine calfskin. Watercolor, gouache, 23k gold leaf, palladium, and pastels are some of the mediums I use.
