Her artworks are owned by private collectors in many countries and she has exhibited or is represented by galleries and curators in cities such as Paris, New York, Chicago, Rome, Bologna, Sydney, Kolkota and Singapore, to name a few.
Olivia uses acrylics, watercolours and inks in rich, luscious layers of colour combined with intriguing mixed media techniques to create textures and patterns that capture what is often overlooked by the human eye.
Passionate about Art…creating it, inspiring others, she invites viewers of her work to feel the spiritual energy and to experience the world around them in a different way through her use of colour, texture and composition.
Olivia is inspired by artists JMW Turner, Gerhard Richter, William de Kooning and the Expressionist movement; however, she has developed a style that is uniquely her own.
She works from her Gold Coast art studio in Queensland and several times per year, teaches Adult classes and workshops in mixed media and colour in various locations.
