Holly's Artwork: http://www.whittierartists.com/hollyoverin
Holly Overin grew up surrounded by a culture of art and music. Her mother, a plein air painter, vowed to give her children “many strings to their bow”, as she put it. In school, Holly studied painting, film animation and sculpture. She now conducts private lessons, teaching the fundamentals of drawing and painting, a classical method her mother handed down. Ever since she was able to remember, she enjoyed making up songs first with piano and later with guitar when her sister taught her some basic chords. Singing and songwriting she did for fun. It was one part soul search and one part entertainment. Ten years ago, Holly realized the importance of this activity in her life and took up music with a new enthusiasm inspired by listening and meeting local musicians. Appropriately named ‘Greenleaf ’, this band of young but classically trained musicians showed her the way to turn over a ‘new leaf’. Holly began performing at open mics and coffee houses, entering a new phase of sharing her songs.
“I love the way these songs come in when I sit down with my guitar to practice coordinating fingers with strings. I hear the sounds and my life moves into equilibrium. A peaceful space of joy and wonder opens up for me and I hope for my friends and listeners who hear these melodies and messages I attempt to communicate, weave together and release in ever changing arrangements.”
Her plans for the future are to continue playing and performing when opportunities arise. The endeavor is a love which heals her and makes her glad she is alive.

Holly Overin's new work is stunning:
"Seated under a tree and looking straight up to the sky, I saw the work of giants in this steep face of orange rock which appeared to be the altar for three distinct piles of cubed lava stones placed in a seemingly deliberate manner upon it's horizontal planes. I was inspired to explore the contrasting shapes." --Holly Overin

"Eaton Canyon is a foothill park in Altadena not far from [my] home. A wonderful place to hike up to creeks and falls. There are some magnificent trees along the way. Many of them must be hundreds of years old." -- Holly Overin
Holly Overin is a Whittier, CA native and local business owner. She has been re-creating animal life and nature in various art mediums for as long as she can remember. Artistic self-expression was greatly encouraged by her ‘ plein air’ painter/mother, Janet Church
. Holly learned to respect the fundamentals of drawing, painting and sculpture as laid down by master artists of the Renaissance, 19th and 20th century. Observing classical works on museum outings, watching her mother paint, and joining her in nature, activated an enthusiasm in utilizing oils and watercolors to record the rapidly disappearing southern California landscape where she grew up.
Holly teaches adults and children the tools of art. Her method, handed down to her by her mother, artist Janet Church, helps students understand how to convey form, impressionist color harmonies, composition and perspective in oils.
