About the Artist:
Holland Van Gores grew up in Southern California spending much time in his fathers shop making anything he could out of wood. His artist mother taught him the beauty of nature and the limitless diversity of shapes, textures, and colors, as well as the wonder they emanate. Wanting to explore other places and cultures, he began traveling as a young man, ending up in the United States Virgin Islands. Buying a sailboat, he sailed with his wife to be, down to South America exploring many Caribbean Islands along the way.
He returned to the USVI and started a construction company building custom homes in around the surrounding islands. After 34 years and now with twin daughters, he and his wife decided to try something new. In 2012 the Van Gores family moved to Western North Carolina where Holland has built a wood working studio nestled in the trees. He has found his place for the time being and will continue his love of creating wood objects.
