Collage has attracted Hollis because of her perception that creating the art and the process of viewing the art is a similar experience. By using the trademark Divine Imagery Is Everywhere subscribes to a belief that ideas flow through her. She doesn’t claim them as something personal after they are executed, metaphysically speaking.
