Project Description

Arts In: Holly Bird


Master artisan and print-maker Holly Bird is working in the Arts & Crafts Revival, creating art through hands-on methods that haven’t changed for hundreds of years.

She worked on the cutting-edge of digital design as those techniques were developing. And storyboarded the classic movie “Caddyshack.”

Holly’s lifelong love of sailing and Florida’s waterways give her work a unique look in the Arts & Crafts Movement. She explains how homeowners renovating historic bungalows are keeping the work of skilled artisans in demand.

Holly is a Roycroft Renaissance Master Artisan-at-Large who practices her craft – and teaches it – at the Dunedin Fine Arts Center. Listen as she walks us through the fascinating process of creating woodblock prints and copper-plate etching.
