International Award Winning Artist Stella Violano is the artist behind Hollyberry Park, a collection of whimsical fun paintings depicting animals. Her domestic animal portraits, also known as her “Unending Homeless Pet Series” are painted using homeless pets as models and a portion of the proceeds from the sale are donated back to the shelter or rescue housing the pet. She earned her degree in Biomedical Illustration but found that she preferred the fanciful side of art and creating unique and fun work that was focused on fun.
She is also a founding member of the international artist fellowship Art Helping Animals. Together, with the other Art Helping Animal artists, Stella has helped to raise over sixty thousand dollars to help animals in need.
