Holly Jade O’Leary
Artist and Creative DIrector Holly Jade O’Leary has exhibited at galleries including Sketch, Home House, The Greenhouse Berlin, and Library private members’ club. She has 10 years experience as a stylist, with royalty and celebrity clientele including Princess Eugenie, Princess Beatrice, Samantha Branson, Anna Friel and Pearl Lowe. Her illustrations feature botanical and fantasy fine art, and use of contemporary artisan techniques.
In recent years she has established a small independent fashion collection created in response to not being able to find anything on the high street with a transparent supply chain. Stylish modern classics for the capsule wardrobe are made to order in Edinburgh, and have exhibited in association with Label Press at St Andrews University. Holly regularly provides consultation for press titles including The Daily Express, The Metro, XEP and The Guardian, and receives freelance commissions for presenting, copy writing, and directing brand campaigns on an international basis.
Please visit The Jewelled Moon Theatre Company to view work in theatre and experiential installations.
Holly’s artistic methodology involves research of architecture, use of the phenomena of the physical world found within classical art, exploring the fantasy, adornism and poetic found in nature, highlighting the experience of sensation and encouraging conservation through storytelling, accompanied by documentary reportage. Her most recent exhibition was at Sketch, Mayfair September 2018, within an installation which opened conversation on sustainability and global environmental responsibility.
