Liv Holland
Artist | Student | Digital Art
Australia
Photography | Traditional Art | Digital Art

I am a self-taught artist based in Sydney, NSW, Australia; and a digital arts student.

Photography: I am mostly an urban/street photographer. I document all my travel experiences and put them together in city albums.

Traditional art: Coloured pencil portraits, graphite sketches, fantasy marker illustrations.

Digital art: Portraits and fantasy scenes, concept art.


Most of my artwork hasn't made to it deviantart yet. Unfortunately because of the issue with Mavericks/Photoshop/Wacom I haven't been able to work on any digital art since the introduction of Mac OS X Mavericks.

For any art/work related questions you can contact me either by:
~ sending me a note on deviantART --> livholland or livhollandcrafts
~ sending an e-mail to livhollandart(at)icloud.com

My jewellery and crafts account ---> :iconlivhollandcrafts:

Current projects:

web design portfolio
Sydney photo trip
abandoned and forgotten places - factories

Interests
I haven't been very active on DeviantART for a very long time. Part of it is lack of motivation, low self-esteem, and never being able to finish a piece of art. But now that I am officially an art student (Games Art course - which satisfies my love for art and games at the same time). I am afraid it is not as artistic as I would have liked it to be but then again I do enjoy programming very much. Part of the course is making us prepare for a work environment and so therefore teach us  to work faster and more efficiently. I hope I will get to finish all of the drawings I began working on - or at least some of them. Although with the amount of work they promised to give us it sounds much less likely. I have so many drawings (even though I haven't been drawing much lately) and even more photographs that I have been meaning to upload. It really helps me to see how much have I improved over the years. The only problem is my perfectionist gene stops me from putting them up - or alternatively makes me delete old pieces so that no one can see them. I've done that so many times. I need to learn to accept all of my drawings as a part of who i am, and learn from my mistakes. 

That being said I am lucky to be on a partially government subsidised course, but I am worrying about the future - meaning my next steps. So if anyone knows of any art scholarships in Australia I would very much appreciate the advice. The TAFE course aims to make me continue my education as a second year student in the University and that is no longer subsidised. For a poor person like me it is but a dream, and I would like to know in advance if there are any scholarships I could apply for.

Lastly, I have just ordered a Midori Traveller's Notebook and a I am looking forward to filling it out and decorating it. I feel like it deserves a post of it's own though. And maybe I will make one once it arrives. Now I am searching for inserts though I might end up making some of my own. The only problem is that it is ridiculously expensive so I am looking into the idea, maybe I can make it cheaper and more available somehow - it's a great way of organising yourself. Especially if you're creative and like to change your mind often. And a an extra income even a little bit while in school would really help me heaps. One of my close, simple dreams is just to have some savings, enough to make me stop worrying about the next rent.


I have been thinking of making a Youtube channel for my art as well to motivate me to draw more and more. I have ideas for tutorials and art supplies reviews in mind i want to share with you all :)

I'll post some pictures of recent or recycled sketches and WIP art soon.

Take care,
Liv.

Sorry I missed the birthday of a wonderful person, Liv Holland. I guess I'll have to buy a cake and eat it all by myself, get ill and bloated. But regrets are a part of living, eh?
