Her hand-painted work graces numerous commercial showrooms, restaurants, corporate offices and private homes across the United States and abroad. Dana Holliday specializes in large scale murals, trompe l'oeil, faux and decorative finishes, and more recently Encaustic art.
Murals and Furniture Painting
Dana has over 25 years experience in murals and furniture painting. She is a master of faux painting technique and finishes such as wood grain, stone, brick, marbling, tile, and rough glass bead texture. She paints murals for both commercial and residential clients.
After studying under Encaustic artist Ezshwan Winding, Dana has embraced this new technique into her painting. Dana's textural style - colors and layering - is further enhanced by the depth of encaustic technique.
Abstract and Canvas Art
Known for painting large murals, in recent years, Dana has taken a little detour to experiment with smaller canvases. She has been inspired by her travels to Nepal and to Italy.
Dana Holliday is a mural artist living in Thomasville, NC. She has been actively painting murals and faux finishes for over 20 years. Dana has been influenced by Impressionism and the works of Georgia O’Keefe while travelling to Europe, South America and New Zealand, she gathered ideas, techniques and the qualities of many cultures to integrate into her highly unique artistic style. She has created many works with a realistic or impressionistic flair and is currently exploring the spontaneity of more abstract art.
Dana loves people and her outgoing and personal style makes her a wonderful person to work with in your home or office. Dana’s special gift is to bring life to the visions of her clients and bring those visions to reality.

Fittingly titled Nepal: Journey of the Spirit, Holliday’s show exhibits images taken in and inspired by the South Asian country, after her trip there for three weeks late last November. She and her close friend Lisa made the decision to travel there on a spiritual journey but discovered much more when they became close to locals, like their tour guide Bhim Chand and his family during their stay in Chand’s home for a week.
