Art = Hope

The whole world drifts away the second I am actively creating art, and it has always been that way. You know that feeling, and it is with my art that I hope the share a little piece of that feeling with you. I’m glad you are here to find out more about the artist behind the art.

Art and creating is something I’ve done from the time I was a little girl. I was always making stuff, even if only a dream world in which to play in. Finally, after many detours  I managed to get a paintbrush in my hand at the age of 23, and this adventure began.

Sometimes trying to ignore something only makes it that much more obvious that it needs to be in your life, for me I can’t see life without my creative dreams and passion to help me through some of the most difficult times of my life. For me these outlets have brought hope and light into some of the darkness that has clouded my world.


Embrace Imperfections.

Lately, through some amazing connections and community, I’ve been embracing the imperfections. This video was inspired by a lovely chat with my Artist’s Way group about that very subject.

Hello! I’m Stacy Kathryn Holst!

I am an artist, simply put.

I love to create, whether it be on canvas, making jewelry, taking pictures, writing, or designing. I’ve realized that not only am I a mixed media artist, I’m living a mixed media creative life. My life is pieced together with different mediums, methods, and means. This shows itself in my paintings and illustrations. My work has been constantly evolving, and each day it is a truer reflection of the artist I am, and the feelings I am trying to evoke.

Fun Facts About Me:

  • I became a mom to the most amazing little guy last year!
  • I recently moved to Door County, Wisconsin
  • I have a 45 year old turtle named Tutor. She has been in our family for 30 years.
  • I absolutely adore road trips
  • I’m passionate about everything art and design, almost to a fault
