Hollie Lyko grew up northwest of Philadelphia in the small suburb of Hatfield, Pennsylvania. She earned her MFA in Studio Art from Syracuse University and her BFA in Ceramics from the University of Hartford. Hollie is influenced by the spaces she encountered as a child, both domestic and public. Her studio practice manifests itself from the curio cabinet holding porcelain treasures to the souvenir of a tourist attraction gift shop. She exhibits her work nationally, most recently at the Clay Studio in Philadelphia, PA and with Ferrin Contemporary in North Adams, MA. Collections include the Fuller Craft Museum and numerous private collections.
Hollie lives in San Antonio, Texas with her husband and son. She teaches middle school art full-time and teaches ceramics part-time at the Southwest School of Art.
