Israel Holloway /brush
Israel Holloway was born 1972 in Boulder, Colorado and grew up in the Yampa Valley. He showed an early interest in art and spent several years as a third generation sign painter where he was introduced to the elements and principles of design and the use of color language. In 1994 Israel was commissioned to sculpt for a popular Denver artist and continued to pursue his artistic development through the years while working in construction, woodworking and drafting. "I've always considered myself a student of fine art. I think the greatest teachers for me have been the public library, daily practice, and certainly all the wonderful students I've had. The artists who have been kind enough to publish their knowledge, observations and methods over the years have certainly influenced my work. Harley Brown, Burt Silverman, Steve Hanks, Norman Rockwell, and Edward Curtis are a few that I look to for advice."
