She has an undergraduate in biology, graduate diploma in marine science, but Holly Gittlein has found another path with art. One of those few artists who are able to make a living with their creativity, Holly sees the world in a natural, reciprocal way, giving the rest of her effort to service organizations, like the Rotary Pacific Water For Life Foundation - having travelled the world extensively.
Professionally working as an artist since 2002, Holly left her science career for the arts, bringing with her a world of real experience that surely gives her work perspective.
Holly does a lot of commission work, along with public art pieces that are displayed in the Palmer State Office Building, Elmendorf Military Base, Valley Pathways, and a lot of other facilities. Her commission work can be seen in many local professional offices as well.
Making a living making art is a rare thing indeed, and Gittlein is cognizant of that. Although, how exactly she's been able to do so remains a bit of mystery - even to her.
Gittlein is gifted, being given to and giving back through art.
