Ms. Holly Wojahn
French Chef Art, Street Bistro Scenes
Whimsical, fanciful, and (0h lala!) so french, is the signature of Holly Wojahn's art. Since moving to France over a dozen years ago, her life and experience in the French capitol has infused and inspired Holly's work.
The Joie de Vivre found in each of Holly's pieces, will entice you, delight you, and take you on a journey from which you'll never want to return!
Holly Wojahn, by all accounts, has met commercial success in the art world. Besides showing her art at Art Online by Conny, Holly Wojahn is represented in one of France's finest art galleries, Galerie Breheret, located at 9, Quai Malaquais, 75006 Paris (Tel/Fax : 01 42 60 74 74 - International : +33 1 42 60 74 74 - www.galerie-breheret.com.
Holly's work is seen around the globe. The colorful, sometimes whimsical pieces have broad appeal with the almost doll-like faces of characters portrayed in scenes.
One thing Holly had to accept when meeting success was that she would be required to reside in France a specified amount of time each year to qualify for representation. She has accepted and embraced the assignment when other commercial artists in California or the United States would have chosen a different path.
While Holly works and resides in Paris, France, the successful American-born artist knew long ago that there was an audience in the US for her work. She created an inventory of paintings and products from Paris and was so kind to allow us to exhibit her art on our site.
Traveling back and forth between France and California, Wojahn does consignment work from clientele requiring items to specifications. While the affordable Glicee prints sold in our online store look every bit as colorful as the original art from which they originated, the affordability of these items make them within reach of the general public.
Ever since she was a child growing up in Portland, Oregon, Holly Wojahn knew that painting has been in her soul. It has never diminished.
To melange aspects of reality with idealism, fact with fiction, truth with embellishment; such pairing of contrasts infuse and characterize Holly Wojahn's work. The results are playful metaphors for common times and places we've all experienced.
