Artist Bio

Holly currently resides in Chicago but grew up in a Northwest suburb of the city. She did not discover photography until high school during a required art elective class. It was there where her attraction to photography took hold. When it came time to go away to college she decided to focus on the one thing she loved to do-take pictures. She went to Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana where she was thrown into their rigorous art curriculum. Her wide range of classes in drawing, painting, sculpture and printmaking have influenced her art and continually pushed her to be a better photographer. Her exposure to art history and theory can be seen in her work as well. A significant presence in her artwork is geometry and line reflecting an urban style and city exposure that is an overlying constant in her photography.
