Description

Olivia is a Swedish-Australian artist, who discovered her need for creativity after chronic illness rendered her house bound and often even bedridden. Being unable to work and contribute, and not knowing whether her health would improve, was isolating and devastating. Painting and photography was her way of surviving emotionally. Olivia’s work is colourful and vibrant, and expresses a sense of joy and peace, which is how she feels when she paints. She hopes her work will encourage others to bring colour and art into their lives, as a way of enhancing their own well-being. She creates predominantly acrylic and mixed media abstract pieces, though she is also an avid portrait photographer. Her portraits often combine photography and art, as she uses her abstract paintings in the background of the portraits to give them a sense of vibrancy and urgency.

Olivia had her first solo exhibition, ‘Colours: More is More’, in 2017. She’s been featured in The Advertiser for the Art For Epilepsy auction, and exhibited locally around Adelaide, including at the “It’s Getting Hot In Here” climate change exhibition (SALA), The Secret Art of Life Exhibition (SALA), The Producers Bar (Silent Partner Productions), Red Opus Gallery, LUXE STYLE CO, and BIMBO. Her work can currently be seen at several locations around Adelaide.
