Carolyn Stich - 2019 AIB Top 20 Finalist
Carolyn Stich has had the privilege of being a gallery/studio owner in downtown Holland for 12 years. She credits her success and longevity to the many wonderful people who have advised her along the way and have given her such great opportunities. Even with the 10 published children’s books she has illustrated, and the many commissioned pieces she has created for numerous West Michigan residents and businesses, Stich says that her greatest honor to date is winning Tulip Time’s Art In Bloom contest in 2015.
“Enduring Delft” is a celebration of Holland, Michigan. The elegant simplicity of Delftware is a beautiful staple of Dutch heritage. The combination of vivid colors and classic patterns is an expression of the rich tradition and lively spirit found in Holland, Michigan.
