Artist, Designer, Educator


Having graduated from the School of Business at High Point University with degrees in Interior Design and Home Furnishings Marketing, Holly has worked in design education for the state of North Carolina since 2004.  As lead college instructor, she has acquired extensive knowledge and experience in presentation and has used her love for teaching to train over a hundred students, prospective business owners and designers to develop their design potential through made-to-order courses that focus on utilizing drawing techniques to increase revenue.

In 2007 Holly began House of Woodward, a studio offering a variety of design and freelance services to industry members.  She has worked with established designers, builders, and real estate developers to conceive furnishings, textiles, architectural drawings, modeling, and presentations.  In addition to the studio, she provides design through her DIY E-design and is in the process of launching a home furnishings, linens, and wallcovering collection.  Holly is best known for her refined silhouette and colorful approach to design with each project individualized to fit her clients' style.....aesthetically chic, but timelessly inspired.

She currently is President-Elect of the Carolinas' Chapter of the International Furniture Design Association (IFDA) and sits on the Advisory Board for the Art and Design Department at High Point University.  When not creating, her greatest joy is being at home with husband Mark and their rescued mutts Dash and Lillian August.

"Design should be a true reflection of yourself and one that compliments the natural rhythm of your life.  I work to craft the perfect harmony of color with neutrals, imaginative patterns with solids, and classical silhouettes with trends to create an everlasting interior that is chic and sophisticated."
