Artist Bio I

Ms. Hollywood first encountered visual art at age four when she and her siblings would race through the Seattle Art Museum which at that time was located in Volunteer Park. The guard was wary but tolerated them. In contrast, the guard at the Conservatory summarily tossed the ebullient brats out of that Victorian glass building. After age six, her visits to the art museum were more sporadic.

She attended college at the University of Washington where she worked in the Audio Visual Department showing slides and films in Art History classes. She also showed slides for visiting artists at the Seattle Art Museum. She continued visiting museums.

Throughout her life, she was an avid doodler and visitor of art museums in the USA and abroad. She finally decided to make visual art. In addition to being a multidisciplinary artist she has been a published poet and a choreographer/performance artist who received small grants.

artist statement

Artist's Statement:

Before social isolation and the Corona Virus I was at a party talking to another artist. At one point in the conversation that artist said, "I am driven to paint." I thought about her statement for a moment and responded, "I am driven to be inspired." As a multidisciplinary/performance artist and writer I am continuously experimenting with ways to tell a story. And I am continuously experimenting with different media. I make 2D and 3D art, acrylic paintings, assemblages, books, videos, costumes, photographs. In the past I have created different personae as a means to aid my creative process and story telling. The four words I use to describe my art are surreal, theatrical, postmodern and conceptual.
