Hollie Chastain is a full-time found paper and collage artist in Chattanooga, Tennessee. A creative spirit ,with early interest in art led to dabbling in watercolor, pottery, glass and earned her a degree in fine arts.
Influenced by nature and fairy tales, she lets water stains, scribble and natural aging play into her pieces. The subject of the piece is often influenced by the materials as opposed to building around a sketch or idea. She creates a world of adventure and secrets open for the viewer’s interpretation.
Here samples of her work…
