Holly Suzanne Rader is an internationally exhibited contemporary American artist born in Appalachian Tennessee. Her work is inspired by fashion, nature, street art, pop punk culture, film noir, French and Americana romanticism. She began her fine arts career over 20 years ago as a classically trained portrait painter, but has since evolved to a mixed media artist who creates collage portraits using photo transfer techniques, acrylic, spray paint and cut crystal embellishments.
She has exhibited her work in New York City, Paris, Hong Kong, Atlanta and Norway.
She now works and lives with her husband John Bednar and two sons in the greater NYC area.
