It’s amazing where a “yes” can lead you. No one knows this better than Canadian silk painter Holly Carr, whose philosophy of “never say no” has led to her being a sought-after live performance artist and has taken her all over the globe. I sat down with Holly recently over Zoom to discuss why she loves silk painting and how she became a live performer.

Enjoy a photo gallery of Holly Carr’s work at the end of the interview.
