Early life H Stewart was born Holly Alena Stewart in Independence, Missouri. She was born on December 16, 1982. She is quoted as saying “I was born small. I fit in my father's hand.” As a child H Stewart began to show an interest in writing. She won numerous awards for her stories throughout elementary school. In 1997 she began to notice that something was awry. She spent the next few years in and out of institutions and living with her family who were unable to deal with the situation before she decided to go out into the world on her own. “After I found myself insane, I left them in order to explore the world.” She managed to hitchhike her way through most of the United States while working odd jobs. At age nineteen she married into what became a tumultuous relationship. In 2004 at age twenty-two she divorced her husband. It is thought that her early life is the foundation for her art.

In addition to her work in art and literature, Stewart learned how to manipulate her voice and began releasing albums as a sound artist through the Russian netlabel Clinical Archives. She lives and works in Kansas City, Missouri.
