Holly Vader was born in Fort Lewis, Washington, in 1991.  She received her BFA from Linfield College 2010, and her MFA at the University of New Mexico in 2017.

I am a multimedia artist, interested in learning about new materials and processes to incorporate into my work.  I am fascinated with existence of a large living organism from the efforts of millions of microscopic organisms working together to ensure that their habitat does not expire.
