Hi Friends! So happy to have you here - and to introduce myself to you. I am a wife, a mother, and an artist. Being an artist awakens my joy every day as I learn to see God's beauty in His creation. From the way the light will arrest my attention as it reveals things my eyes didn't previously see to the way capturing something on canvas triggers my imagination, memories, and connections from life; I feel so privileged to paint. I hope that my work inspires you and takes you to those places in your memories and life connections that bring you joy!
I studied for and attained my degree in Interior Design at Mount Royal College in Calgary, Alberta. I worked in this industry for a while, but after having our first son, my focus shifted to following my dream to paint. Every day I get to continue this journey and continue to build my passion and career as a professional artist.
Exciting things are always happening in the studio and I look forward to sharing them with you! Drop me a line if you'd like, I'd love to connect!
All the best,
Holly Dyrland is an Alberta Artist working in acrylics. She grew up drawing, but didn't start to work seriously in artistic communication until she studied Interior Design in Calgary at Mount Royal College. Learning to draw and paint in Design school gave her background and the technical knowledge to continue, starting to explore painting artistically as well as for design purposes. She now lives in rural Alberta with her husband and three boys and draws inspiration from her daily life and experiences. Her paintings capture a sense of light and life of the subject, bringing the everyday beauty of landscapes to the canvas and into the homes of private collectors worldwide.
