About Holly

I don’t remember not being completely fascinated by unique things. Countless hours as a young child spent with my mother and grandmother in fabric and design stores, always thumbing through catalogs looking at clothes or textiles and drawers of apparel patterns. The love for design was definitely passed down to me.
My first work with design came from my mother’s art gallery in Shreveport, Louisiana as a teen and when I moved to Savannah for college, I worked again in a gallery, this one featuring renowned artist Ray Ellis. 
In the early 2000’s I became a partner in Hansen Fine Art where we sold paintings to individuals and businesses and also did design consultation.  
It was during this time that we lived in South Georgia that I also began painting, taught by a local artist in Thomasville, Georgia. We spent a lot of the year in Savannah, and I was able to fine tune my style and find inspiration. My abstract landscapes were sold in a local gallery. 
One final move has taken us to the Atlanta area, but we spend all of our vacations and any free time along the coast of the Atlantic, from Hilton Head to St. Simons Island or St. Augustine...with frequent visits to the Gulf Coast. 
In 2020 I formed Holly Shae Design with just an oyster shell as inspiration.  My brand has evolved from accessories and jewelry to linens and now the design of my clothing line. 
Design of clothing has been a dream of mine since I was a teen. I vividly remember seeing the work and style of Carolina Herrera and Diane von Furstenberg and being mesmerized.  I carried ideas around with me for three decades and now they are coming to life.
With my work now sold in over 100 boutiques and resorts throughout the US, Canada and Europe,  I hope you will find the same love of these things as I always have!   Enjoy!
