About the Author

Holly Hobbie

Birthed with the name of Denise Holly Ulinskas in 1944, Holly Hobbie first sold her distinctive artwork of the little cat-loving girl who carries herself in a rag dress and giant bonnet. It wasn't until she married Douglas Hobbie in 1964 when she named her originally nameless character after her. When the first images of the rag-clothed little girl came to the public's consciousness, the character has been nothing but the most common design chosen to grace greeting cards. When the girl's popularity started to soar high, that's when people started to adopt the name "Holly Hobbie" in reference to the character's creator.
