Hollis rocking some up-cycled pantsMy name is Hollis Nelson and I am a painter at Sunrise Studios, 1182 East Hastings in Vancouver. I paint on vintage leather and denim.

I am excited about slow fashion and I like to make art out of things that already exist, rather then create something new.

The idea of up-cycling and circular economy is at the very core of my art practice and through sustainable re-worked fashion and recycled installations I inspire others to re-think how they view garbage & pre-loved items.
