Hi I'm Holly! I'm also known as The Twister Sister among my balloon artist friends and fans on YouTube. I have been making balloon animals since I was just 10 years old. It all started when my dad came home from a military trip with a balloon animal starter kit he picked up and gave to us as a gift when he returned home. I remember sitting around the table that night with my whole family, all of us trying to create dogs and swords and dogs with long necks that became giraffes. There was lots of laughing and fun had by all! I really loved all the little balloon dogs I had made and I took them up to my room and I remember playing with them like most girls would play with dolls. I drew different faces on each one and had a blast going on imaginary adventures with my balloon dogs!
Soon I was getting more advanced balloon kits as presents for the holidays and I got better and better at making all sorts of balloon animals! I never in my wildest dreams thought anyone would pay me to make balloon animals! It was just something I did for fun!
Flash forward to 2015 - I am now 30 years old and I still enjoy making balloon animals, but now I get to do it for a world-wide audience on YouTube plus countless local parties and events right here in my hometown of San Antonio, TX!
