The Full Story
Holly Manohar studied Intercultural Relations, Anthropology, Meditation, Yoga and Art. She traveled extensively through South Asia, and married into the vibrant Tamizh culture of South Inida. She completed her degree in Art and her 200 hr Yoga Certification in 2017 and 2018 respectively. After doing some commissioned illustration work and mural work, she returned to doing her own artwork with ink and watercolor.
She now lives in Cortez, Colorado while still frequently traveling with her husband to India, Hawaii, East Africa and Central America. Her artwork features emotionally sensitive line work, a playful and expressive use of color. The themes of her work are deeply rooted in Eastern philosophy and meditation. Each piece is like its own meditation.
