Alive & The Bluebird 2024 Art

The artwork for Alive & The Bluebird 2024 comes from Alive family member and local artist, Hollie Roy.

When Hollie was approached by Alive nurse Marc Vera with the idea of donating a custom piece to Alive’s biggest annual fundraising event, she jumped at the chance to give back to an organization she already felt deeply connected to.

“Alive was instrumental in bringing my father-in-law home to rest comfortably and peacefully, surrounded by family and friends at the last stages of his battle with cancer,” says Hollie. “Again, when my grandmother wanted to be home for her final weeks of life, it was the amazing nurses from Alive who helped us keep her comfortable, held our hands and offered the most genuine support during such a difficult time.”

Hollie is a Nashville native who loves experimenting with color and movement in her abstract art. Inspired by her Middle Tennessee roots and the quiet moments she appreciates in life, she discovered her creative calling in 2019. She’s been painting colorful, abstract pieces ever since.
