Retouch Artist / Nuke Compositor

Clients: Honda, Farmers Insurance, Clippers

"The agency I work for hired Holli for a Digital Retoucher/Production artist position in 2015. She took no time at all to come up to speed on our work flow and suggested some great ideas for improving it. 
It didn't take her long to spread her wings in to motion graphics, learning and excelling in Nuke very fast and using her After Effects skills to great use in production and design. Her work is always on time and efficiently managed. She takes direction well and learns new things fast. She is a valuable part of our team, who constantly thinks about new ways to improve herself and the work environment around her. She brings to the table an inquiring mind and artist sensibilities, an excellent balance of left and right brain." -

"Holli is a talented artist with fresh ideas and an awesome personality. She was an essential asset to the team, and a cornerstone for several of our animated projects. It was a delight to work with her, and I look forward to working with her again." -  Matt Rasamoto


Lola VFX

2010 – 2012

Matte Painting / Compositing

"Holli was an outstanding resource for Lola, consistently delivering creative ideas within a short time frame. We hired Holli specifically for one show with over 500 shots and continued to use her services for the remaining work we had in house. She was able to quickly integrate with our existing compositing team, was always on time, and we look forward to bringing her back on when we require additional matte painting resources." -Thomas Nittmann
