INSPIRED BY NATURE
My name is Holly O'Meara, I founded CraftyBun Studio in November 2016, having developed my printing practice for over 6 years.
As an artist I specialise in print-making, photography and film-making.
Introduction- Holly O'Meara
I studied Contemporary Fine Art at University and during that time fell in love with printmaking. I love how much texture you can get from different printing techniques and the unpredictable nature of the process that you can never fully control.
Since moving back to Birmingham I have been part of the Birmingham Printmakers taking inspiration from nature, wildlife and the world around me.
My main printing techniques are Collograph, Lino-cuts & Wood-cuts. I am also a self employed photographer and film maker, allowing me to capture a moment in time and later use my images for printing inspiration.
Pet Commissions & Purchases
Pet Commission- Bleue & Mercy
"I bought my partner a Birthday card with our dogs collagraphed onto the cover and it was awesome!"
Pet Commission- Alfie
Crafty Bun's Holly created a wonderful portrait of our beloved late dog Alfie. When she revealed the finished piece it literally bought me to tears. It is wonderful and hangs in our lounge. We have also purchased other portraits and greetings cards which are excellent. We love her work and can highly recommend Holly and her talent. Thank you Holly. We are very happy returning customers.

Pet Commission- Pearl
"Even though our old rescue cat, Pearl, died back in 2013 at the grand old age of 18, CraftyBun's collagraph of her brings her back in a second. It really captures her in a totally content moment, so much so that I can almost hear her purr. Thanks to CraftyBun for capturing such a lovely memory!"
