Stacy Kathryn Holst


Hello! I’m Stacy Kathryn Holst and I am an illustrator and surface pattern designer.

My overall style leans towards playful, nature inspired, and childhood as the main themes. I love animals, and especially drawing birds and dogs as odd of a combo as that is.

I am currently available for your next illustration project. Think we would be a good fit?

A little more about Stacy…

I grew up in the big city of Chicago, where I often craved green space and the quiet hush that only the country could bring. We spent many of my childhood summers camping, and in Door County, Wisconsin, where lived for four years. I’ve since relocated to southern Wisconsin, and live surrounded by trees! It is among the trees, water, and solitude that I’m finding my art and navigating my life as a new mom and artist. 

Art and creating is something I’ve done from the time I was a little girl. I was always making stuff, even if only a dream world in which to play in. After getting my associates degree in pre-press and printing, I finally after many detours, managed to get a paintbrush in my hand at the age of 23 as I studied Graphic Design at Dominican University. It was in my last year of school and after receiving my BA that this adventure began. 

Thank you for being a part of my journey!
