Holly Fisher was born and raised in central Iowa. She earned her B.F.A. in Sculpture from Truman State University and her M.F.A. from The University of Montana. Holly has kept herself busy over the years as an artist, a sculptor, a blacksmith, a teacher and a designer. Hollys art work typically bears striking lines and handsome planes thoughtfully arranged and balanced with masses of space. When it comes to blacksmithing, Holly prefers striking because its fun and it feels good, and theres only one spot to hit. Holly is tall, she likes horses, blacksmiths, coffee and dogs. When asked about her work and her medium, Holly emphatically states I am constantly inspired by the natural world and strive to create lasting tributes in forged metals. I place my artistic focus on craftsmanship, character, beauty, and innovation, which makes for daily revelations and challenging yet fulfilling work. "I study traditional blacksmithing techniques and employ them to create contemporary objects. I pick my forms from the things that I love; horses, coal mines, gardening, and the natural world. Blacksmithing, its rich history, its heavy ancient tools, its simple, yet arduous processes, produces a powerful visual impact, and a rich 'feel it in your gut' aesthetic."
