Holly Welch is an artist and graphic designer from Minneapolis, Minnesota, who loves color. For no apparent reason she got a job as a backpacking guide at a summer camp in Montana. She had hardly ever seen a mountain before. The experience changed her from a girl with a closet full of black clothes, yearning to live in Manhattan, to someone with flannel shirts, hiking boots, and a dedication to creativity. Her sense of the earth, community and spirituality was shaped by the sound of the river, the chill of the mornings, and fields of wild daisies. She gave birth to her son Summit while working on this book and feels that his presence on the inside influenced the images. Inside All is Holly’s first book with Dawn Publications.
