Holt McLean has loved to draw for as long as she can remember. Her fate as an artist was sealed when she received the National Gold Key Scholastic Art Award during her freshman year in high school. She received a Bachelor in Fine Arts from Appalachian State University with a major in graphic design. After several years living and working in California, McLean enrolled at the International School of Drawing, Painting and Sculpture in Umbria, Italy. She returned to North Carolina and began making a name for herself by capturing on canvas the beautiful landscape scenery this area affords.
