Sisters Holly and Ashlee Temple create their artwork together by a fluidly collaborative system. Holly lives and works in Carmel; sister Ashlee lives and has a studio in Stockton, but comes to their studio in Sand City every month to collaborate in person with Holly. The symbiotic nature of their work methods, and the joint identity by which they present it, is such that one might assume they are twins, but they are in fact 3-1/2 years apart in age.

Their work begins with a notebook: each writes ideas and puts down individual prep work in the book, which is sent back and forth throughout the month they are apart. Concepts are firmed up during daily phone talks, and then the final work mixed media and collage work that often incorporates 19th century illustrations and photographs - is completed during their time together in Sand City
