Working in oil, her earlier work was more abstract, using palette knife. Since 2000 she has commenced on a spiritual and creative search which has emanated in an extensive series of bold, colour-filled tree paintings that evoke images of both Emily Carr and Stanley Cosgrove. She signs her works 'Holl Hunt'.
