ABOUT THE ARTIST
About the artist
My name is Holly Ertter and I am a skilled artist. I have studied art at both the Indiana University of Pennsylvania and Temple University, also in Pennsylvania. I am the CEO and proud mother of two adolescent children. I'm a Breast Cancer Survivor, I'm happily married, and I live in Pennsylvania.
I was born in Johnstown, Pennsylvania and discovered at a young age that I needed to create. I was the child who got grounded from crayons and paint instead of the phone and video games when I was in trouble. My parents knew which items would hurt the most!! I grew up drawing and painting all of the time.
Over the past years, I have painted advertisement signs for local businesses that sponsor area softball and baseball teams for display in the outfield. I have also created designs for events and festivities in my community for use on T-shirts. I worked in a large shop named Country Critters in Indiana, PA where I painted intricate faces on dolls that were sold all over the world while attending Indiana University of Pennsylvania.
I am best known for reproducing both pencil drawings and paintings from personal photos. I also paint wall murals, and make personal scissor cuttings, also known as the German art of Scherenschnitte. I have painted images on lawn rocks, toys and furniture and I have also created many custom creations for my customers.
Most recently, I started a new venture called "Moscato Meetings," which are paint and wine sessions. I teach participants step by step instruction to create a painting or craft in one session as they bring their favorite beverage of choice to enjoy (mostly wine ).
I am a member of the Fine Art Registry and all of my creations come with a certificate of authenticity and a numbered registered tag with the Fine Art Registry. I also belong t0 the Art Chain.
I love a challenge and I welcome the opportunity of creating something that you will love. Please allow me ample time to make your creation because I am a one-woman studio! I will work closely with each customer to ensure their complete satisfaction. Thanks for looking at my website and considering a commission! I look forward to creating something beautiful for you that you can cherish for a lifetime!
