About Holly

Holly Anderson works primarily with painting as a practice for investigating anxious bodily and psychic sensations. An awareness of the body as a form messily embedded within threatened ecologies belies this interest. With continual reference to the bathers and sunlit landscapes of classical romantic landscape painting, various ways the body might be more strangely implicated in these systems are tentatively explored.

Art portfolio requirements tip

Since your art portfolio website will often be someone’s first introduction to your work, you need to make a strong and memorable impression. You might be tempted to include every piece of art you’ve done to show versatility, but it’s in your best interest to exclude any work that isn’t your best. You want your viewers to want to see more, not to feel overwhelmed by a website that is too busy or distracts from the work itself.

Art portfolio design ideas for multidisciplinary artists

It can be challenging to decide on a layout for your art portfolio website, especially if you work in a variety of mediums or styles. The last thing you want is for your site to be overwhelming to visitors, so try separating your work into medium, and then have sections within that for individual projects or themes to make it easy to navigate.

Artist website design ideas for photographers

If you’re a photographer capturing large images with a lot of detail, like landscape photos or fine art photography, you might want to choose a website template that allows you to show your photos uncropped. This can be achieved by using a vertical scroll portfolio template that accommodates full width images. For landscape photos, consider grouping them into categories like location, theme, or date.

Art concept ideas for illustrators

A great way to make your artwork stand out is by showcasing how it looks in real life. One way that you can achieve this is by creating photo mockups of your art on the wall of a home or museum or even as a mural on the side of a building. Just make sure that you’re clear about these images being mockups, especially if you’re playing with the scale of your art. You could also do a photoshoot with your art to create a memorable artist photo for your artist bio or About Me page.
