Hollis Sigler studied in Philadelphia and in Florence before receiving her M.F.A. from the Art Institute of Chicago in 1973. Around 1978 Hollis abandoned her style of work which had been based on her academic training in favor of a faux naif style. This was a transformation from realism and the tradition of the academic canon to a style that looked rather child-like. At this time her work began to address issues in her personal life allowing her to give a voice to her feelings. Much of her work is now focused toward the disease of cancer which has become part of her life.
