Hollis Moore is an artist and educator currently pursuing her MFA in Printmaking at the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque. She grew up in Baltimore,Maryland and moved to Colorado Springs to pursue her BA in Studio Art at Colorado College.  Hollis worked as a printer at Oehme Graphics FineArts Publishing in Steamboat Springs, CO while sustaining a studio practice rooted in art & ecology. Her current work investigates environmental issues related to water scarcity. Performative field research, works on paper, video and installation reference history between art and maps in order to reinterpret ecological systems. Her interdisciplinary approach demonstrates the need to communicate layered perceptions and narratives in order to articulate process in land representation.
