Biography

Holly MacKinnon (b.1992, Canada) is a painter working out of Montreal, Canada. Her work involves figurative and landscape elements to create dreamy, imagined environments rife with tension and emotion. She wishes to entice the viewer with a balance between the sophisticated and the childlike, creating a gentle pull between beauty and darkness, joy and despair. She received her BFA from NSCAD University in 2015 and she has participated in many exhibitions and residencies, both in Canada and abroad.
