Holly Wentlent

From a very young age, I was driven to create. My dream was to go to art school and become a full-time artist. I took art classes in high school, but that’s where my formal art education and dream died. I went to college and earned a degree in Web Development, I had a beautiful daughter, and art faded from my life for almost 30 years.  In 2020 the world shut down and I had a lot of time on my hands, so I decided to try watercolors. I fell in love. 


I am drawn to nature and the unique architecture of Western New York and much of my body of work reflects these two subjects. 


I have had some major hurdles to overcome since I began painting, I had an accident and broke both of my wrists, and then in early 2023 I was given a diagnosis of colon cancer. Luckily, I am healthy and have a whole new perspective on life. 


Through my art, I hope to inspire others to see the world around them with fresh eyes and to appreciate the artistry in everyday objects and places. I believe art has the power to connect people, to spark conversations, and to bring joy and meaning to our lives. By sharing my passion, I hope to make a positive impact on those around me.
