Hollie Heller is a mixed media collage artist living in Bridgewater, New Jersey. As unique as her finished contemporary works, Heller's creative process is equally intriguing. Each project begins with a curious investigation and collection of diverse yet common materials. This compilation of seemingly arbitrary items serves a critical structural purpose in her work. With a wealth of newly created raw material, Heller builds her compositions piece and layer at a time. Heller describes her work as experimental, using processes that she has discovered in her studio with products such as latex, acrylic mediums, wood stain, pigments, dyes and bleach with paper and fabric. Heller has been teaching Surface Design and Collage for over 20 years in Universities as well as Workshops nationally. Her wall pieces are included in many corporate and private collections including: Hyatt Hotels in San Antonio Texas, Sarasota Florida, Penns Landing in Philadelphia Pennsylvania, Sadona Arizona. Hilton Hotel in Nashville Tennessee, Doubletree Hotel in Chicago Illinois, Southpark Suites in Charlotte North Carolinia, Westin Hotel in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania, Mohegan Sun Casino in Connecticut, Omni Hotels in Atlanta Georgia and Orlando Florida, HBO World Headquarters in New York City, the Arthur Blank Foundation in Atlanta Georgia, Rutgers University in New Brunswick New Jersey and Johnson and Johnson Pharmaceuticals in New Brunswick New Jersey.
