Holland has spent the better part of his life working with wood. As a child, he had access to his father’s workshop and was able to use the tools and supplies. Learning these skills early in life, led him to choose a career in construction where he honed his skills in California before taking on construction work in remote Costa Rica and eventually the United States Virgin Islands. After 34 years in the islands, Holland and his family relocated to western North Carolina where he built a studio surrounded by the Pisgah National Forest.

"Making something with my hands makes me feel a connection to that piece, giving it a purpose," says Van Gores, who is constantly experimenting with forms and textures, often inspired by organic themes.
