After graduating from college with a BFA in Studio Art, Holly Nichols sought a way to merge her love of fashion with art. Her sketchbook and napkin doodles of designer duds became refined drawings that she now creates with her beloved artist markers. She uses her fashion-inspired illustrations to engage her extensive audience on Facebook and Instagram of over 700k followers. Holly has created fashionable illustrations and artful campaigns for TRESemmé, Saks Fifth Avenue, Barney's New York, Neiman Marcus, Disney, Living Proof, and many more. She creates her work both in her studio, and straight from the seats of fashion week and more. Her work is sold internationally and she works with corporate clients to create fashion and beauty illustrations for campaigns, live-sketch events, and more. Today, she uses artist-quality illustration markers to hand-sketch garments with love from her studio just south of Boston, MA. (www.hnicholsillustration.com)
