For over a decade, Hollis worked as an actor in film and theater in NYC. After studying improv at the People’s Improv Theatre, she began developing a unique teaching curriculum “improv for the artist”, which she taught at arts institutions such as Columbia university, school for visual arts, and Pratt Institute, where she is on faculty in the fine arts department.
