As a fine art photographer, Holly works with medium and large format black and white silver gelatin, wet plate collodion and digital media. She has had her work shown and privately collected in both the United States and Canada. Venues for Holly’s exhibitions include solo, juried, and group shows at galleries, photography centers, museums and hospitals. She has been a featured artist in both the Boston Arts Festival, sponsored by Mayor Thomas Menino and the Office of Tourism, and the Cambridge Science Festival, organized by the MIT Museum in Cambridge, MA.
As an arts educator, Holly has been teaching at Walnut Hill School for the Arts in Natick, MA since 1990. She received her B.F.A. and M.A.T. from Maryland Institute College of Art. Prior to transferring to M.I.C.A., she studied biology and fine arts at Goucher College as a Rosenberg Scholar. In 2004 she received an Art Renewal for Teachers grant, allowing her to travel to Labrador, Canada, to work on a project that uses images of landscapes as metaphors for medical specialties. An additional grant from Art Renewal allowed Holly to develop and integrate a student self-portrait project into a core segment of the Walnut Hill School biology curriculum. Holly currently serves as the Director of School Outreach for The Photographic Historical Society of New England (PHSNE). In this role she helps connect donated cameras and darkroom equipment to school darkroom photography programs and students in need.*
