Meet Holly...

Oh hai, I’m the artist behind hollyhedral. I’m 32 years old and a full-time Honors Student at the University of Michigan.
My major is Social Theory and Practice. I’m privileged with a neurodivergent mind for many things; from math and science to art and astrology.
My identity is pangender/pansexual; all pronouns work for me.

About five years ago, I started painting galaxies and just never stopped. I love painting, and multimedia art.
I began making Zodiac constellation paintings, and affixing Swarovski crystals as the constellation stars.
It quickly became my favorite hobby, and I started doing craft shows for my smaller pieces and art shows for my larger ones.

Once school started, I stopped having time to paint and keep up with making art.
My friend suggested I printed my constellation paintings, and I took off running with the idea.
I started bringing hollyhedral to life online and I love where it’s going.  

The idea is simple...

Anyone can upload a pride flag onto a coffee mug and make money… but maybe LGBTQ+ folks should be the ones who get to profit off of Pride. Print on Demand, Digital Retailing, all areas of E-Commerce are seeing a boom… and there’s no shortage of queer creativity.

Shouldn’t we start claiming our space?

That goes for all communities, though. I only express and represent my identity; but one of my goals is featuring a bunch of artistic representation. Maybe be part of a movement. For now, I’m just trying to find a job that lets me study a lot. I hope you enjoy my work <3

How can I be both an astrologer and scientist?
