Hollie Chastain is a nationally recognized professional artist living and working in Chattanooga,
Tennessee. Following studies in both fine art and business, she spent several years in corporate
marketing and graphic design before returning to the studio to launch a career as an artist and
illustrator. Inspired by history and vintage materials, Chastain uses paper, mixing found images with
modern, bright colors, to create compositions that explode with an original narrative. Her love for
ephemera, notably discarded books, used stamps, and tossed-aside scribbles and notes, defines a
personalized style that also communicates a refined artistic technique.
Working as both an artist and illustrator, Chastain produces work for galleries across the country as
well as designs materials for clients such as Warner Music Group; Smithsonian Magazine; The Baffler;Oxford American; Lilith Magazine; Rizzoli Publishing; Buffalo Tom; The Figgs; Salt Hill Journal; Modernista Publishing; 6PAR4; Aquila Magazine; Gestalten Publishers; Henhouse; Slice Magazine; Lethe Press; Soho Myriad for Omni Hotel Nashville; University of Akron Press; The Breakthrough Institute; Spirituality and Health; and Algonquin Books. She is also the author of the book, If You Can Cut, You Can Collage, which is available through Quarto Publishing.
