Artist from childhood
HollyAnne Knight is a 20-something wife, mama, and artist. She has a life-long background in visual arts, over a decade of knitting experience, and training in several types on dance from classical ballet to ballroom to Zumba. She has been married to the Hubster (John) since May 2013, and they have two boys, Jem (December 2014) and Ian (March 2016). They live in Duluth, Georgia near HollyAnne's parents and enjoy being outside, sharing meals and adventures with friends, and singing silly songs.
While HollyAnne's first exposure to machine sewing was at the young age of 8, it was much more recently that she returned to it. She began with a tshirt quilt for her Mama, and she continues to make tshirt quilts for customers all over the United States. She also sews modern quilts and thinks of much of her work as "modern impressionist quilts," combining the imagery of art quilts with the functionality of other modern quilts. Her style of quilting is strongly influenced by her love of Impressionist and Post-Impressionist painters, her own work with paints, and her love of the outdoors.
Get to know me better by hanging out on Instagram! I love to share goofy, behind the scenes things in my stories!
In addition to being owner and artist at String & Story, I am also the co-founder and President of Quilts for Cure, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that raises awareness about childhood cancer, raises money for better treatment options, and provides kids in treatment with quilts for comfort and encouragement. There are 40,000 kids in the United States today who are fighting for their lives against cancer. Please visit the Quilts for Cure website to learn more and to donate to our cause today.
