Hi, my name is Holly. I make things. Compulsively. It is hard for me to not make things. Drawing, paintings, sculptures, prints. Scarves, hats, blankets, embroidery, food, drink, business plans, photographs, suggestions, jokes, portmanteaux. Although I love a quality minimalist, utilitarian, sleek design and execution, my own taste definitely runs toward the complicated, intricate, fancy. That is to say, ornate. Ornatelier is my new studio, new business, new blog, and new favorite portmanteau. This site is a showcase for my work, and anything wonderful that catches my eye. Expect plenty of neat things, including some reviews of products, events, or experiences. Although this might be my gallery / soapbox, your participation is quite welcome!
