HOLLY BERGER MARKHOFF is a contemporary mixed media artist. Born in New York City, Holly grew up outside of Washington DC, in Alexandria, Virginia. She currently lives in Richmond, Virginia with her husband, two college age children, and two dogs. She has a studio in her home, and in the city’s Museum District.
Holly’s artistic goal is to create works that are soothing and sophisticated, yet express an inspiring playfulness and joy. Her paintings are often large, colorful and glossy having evolved to incorporate sculptural elements and mixed media. Papers and fabrics are at times mixed with layers of gloss varnish, acrylic, enamel and house paints. A heating element may be used to seal and texturize. Paintings can be spontaneous and simply directed by the materials used. More often pieces continue the process of completing the expression of a recurrent sketch or theme. Holly’s work can be seen in corporate collections throughout the state of Virginia and in private collections nationally and internationally. Please find her on the web at www.HollyMarkhoff.com
As a side note, Holly was involved in theater arts as a teenager and child, including productions at the Little Theatre of Alexandria, and as a member of a touring pantomime group, which put on over 40 shows in one summer! Holly is honored to have her work shown in the renowned Swift Creek Mill Theatre, coinciding with the esteemed stage debut of Little Lion!
