Holly Thomas Stein


My name is Holly Thomas Stein. I am the artist behind HTS Studios. 

I have been an artist for as long as I can remember. From crayons to computers and everywhere in between. It’s thrilling that the tools of my trade are paper, pencils and paint, silver and stones! Creating is part of my every day. And I love it!

In my 30+ years as a self-employed artist, I have been a graphic designer, illustrator, metalsmith and mixed media artist. I’ve owned an art gallery and taught jewelry making. I have been fortunate to work with amazing international companies creating marketing and advertising campaigns, products and packaging. My work has been featured in books and magazines and won numerous awards.

With traditional art training and wide experience, my art is classic with a twist and perfect for licensing partners looking for fresh and elegant product ideas. Creating to delight consumers and forge long and successful relationships by providing manufacturing partners with beautiful art and excellent client service is the core of my business. 

I live and work in beautiful central Texas, where I’m frequently joined in the studio by a large, feisty cat, Mr. Jinx, and his best buddy, Jax, a lovable chocolate lab.

Thanks for stopping by!

PS. If you were wondering about all those colored binders...they are filled with art that is ready for your amazing products. Let's do it!
