IWD: Hollie Galloway
Hollie is currently working as a Photography Technician Demonstrator at The Northern School of Art and has worked in various different Photography and Design roles since graduating from her BA (Hons) Photography at The School in 2010. This has included working as a Graphic Designer and Photographer in a marketing team, as a Senior Artworker at a print company and as a Fashion Photographer for one of the leading retailers of globally sourced menswear, as well as consistent freelance projects. She is a Phase One Certified Professional and an Adobe Certified Associate.
In 2018 Hollie started an artist collective to give female artists in the North East of England more opportunity for exhibitions and promotion. The launch in December proved that this was something the artists in the area were very supportive of and there are now over 50 artists providing work to be promoted and exhibited as part of the collective. Earlier this month Hollie was awarded a grant to support the project from Creative Factory at Middlesbrough Council, which was a fantastic honour and will enable the project to keep expanding and bringing something new and different to artists in the North East.
