Sarah Francis Hollis was born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio. She is an artist, educator, curator, entrepreneur and design strategist in the healthcare sphere. She received her BFA from the Art Academy of Cincinnati in 2004 and her Masters Degree in Fine Art from the University of Cincinnati in 2007. Sarah has shown her work all over the country, most notably in the Memory Palace exhibition curated by Steven Matijcio at the Contemporary Arts Center in Cincinnati. She currently lives and works in the greater Cincinnati area.

Hollis works with many different mediums, including found objects, office supplies, typewriters, gouache, pen & ink and woodworking. She is an avid diaristic writer and collagist, and has had a substantial portion of her journals published in the London based visual arts magazine, Miser & Now. Hollis is best known for sculpturally combining guttural, autobiographic prose with office supplies in an effort to catalogue specific memories and moments in time. 

Her latest works on paper are collages that focus on dystopian landscapes, specifically US child migrant detention centers and the timelessness of Flowerama retail shops.
