Holley Maher- The woman behind the shop



Your about to be introduced to a really cool chick. The more I get to know her I think, “are we the same person?” LOL. She’s all kinds of cool, and SUPER creative.(She’s also a killer singer/songwriter)  She just launched an awesome greeting card line and has a lot of other really rad handmade goods. I had so much fun going to her cute studio and seeing her in action! She’s so talented! She just had a big launch party, and we went and I wanted to buy it all! I picked up a few cute cards, and the cutest print of my neighborhood(Germantown). So be sure to go to her site and get yourself some cards! She has so many to choose from!! OK, OK….I won’t make you wait any longer!! Meet Holley!

I’m Holley. I’m a singer/songwriter by most days, and a graphic designer by others. After years of part-timing as a freelance graphic designer in addition to pursuing my music career, I recently decided to say good-bye to working with clients (sorry, guys) and launch my own stationery line and art business called The Shop by H. Maher Creative. I love being able to see something through from concept to completion in a couple of hours or less (something I can’t always do as a recording artist), and The Shop has given me an opportunity to create art that is completely my own.We just launched our Spring 2015 greeting card line, several art prints, and some of my hand-woven wall hangings. Eventually, I have a whole slew of products I’d like to carry, like notebooks, cell phone cases, and more. This has been a true throw-her-into-the-deep-end learning experience, but it’s something I’ve always wanted to do and I love it.

What’s your fave song right now?

“Cocaine” by Sleepwalkers. The song, yes, so good. Actual drugs, no.

What’s your favorite style to wear?

I’d say my style is pretty bohemian. I like prints and colors and basically any kimono or large sweater. Sometimes I try to lean towards that “minimal” look, but I think I just end up looking like all my interesting clothes were in the hamper.

What’s your guilty pleasure snack go-to?

Peanut butter chocolate chip Larabars.

What’s your MUST-HAVE beauty item you can’t live without?
Laura Mercier High Coverage Concealer For Under Eye. I shouldn’t stare at the computer screen so much.
Who’s the most influential person in your life?
No one person is most influential, really. I try not to grant absolute power to any one of my friends or family members (#corruption). They’re all completely necessary to me in their own ways. But overall, my parents are the best guidance councilors I’ve ever had, and my wonderful, level-headed boyfriend, Dan, is especially talented at making sure I don’t fly off the rails.
What’s the one thing you want to accomplish that you haven’t yet?
A kick-ass life and dying happy. And loving someone really, really well, forever.
What’s your favorite thing in your closet?
This stupidly perfect red tasseled kimono from Spell and the Gypsy Collective.
What’s your favorite inspirational quote?
My grandpa always told us to “do what you love, and the money will come.” He was absolutely right about that.
