Holly began her journey toward becoming a jeweler and goldsmith right here in Portland, at the Maine College of Art (formerly the “Portland School of Art”). She spent her early years in a dark, damp basement with nothing more than a bench and a few tools. Slowly, while balancing raising a family and second jobs, she built her career. Holly spent a lot of time traveling for shows and displaying her work in other small galleries, which lead to eventually opening her own in a small coastal town in Maine. The journey eventually brought her back to Portland, to the place where it all began…in a beautiful space and city that reflects and honors her hard work and years of dedication.
The H Gallery is located in the heart of Portland’s charming Old Port district. Beautiful, airy and spacious, the gallery serves as both working studio for Holly and display area for finished pieces.
