Hi, I'm Olivia,
I'm a Freelance Artist and Illustrator living in the South of England, and I'm here to help you bring your imagination to life.
Ever since I can remember, I have had a passion for art and storytelling. As soon as I was old enough to hold a pen, I was scribbling on anything I could get my hands on - paper, walls, people. You name it, I've tried it. Art has always been more than just a hobby to me. It's a state of mind and a means of self-reflection. I've always loved how art can tell a story and communicate a message to whoever is looking at it. I became mesmerised by the use of symbolism and storytelling very early in my creative journey.
Art has a powerful ability to capture emotions and tell stories. Stories about your experiences and perceptions of the world, stories about culture and history, stories about someone else's experiences, or just about anything you can dream up in your infinite imagination. I love that a single piece of art can contain a truly personal and profound meaning, unique to every person who views it. Some art can have an ambiguous meaning. Perhaps at first it seems obvious what the story is about. But, upon a second or third glance, another hidden idea emerges through the brush marks. Art is a mirror for the soul and for society. It's a powerful tool to help us learn more about ourselves and to explore concepts which cannot be captured with words alone.
Over the past 8 years working as a freelance artist and illustrator, I've had the pleasure of collaborating with some incredible clients. I've worked on a wide variety of projects such as: stand-alone artworks with a personal meaning to the client, illustrating a business' story, vision or brand journey, designing and painting murals for bedrooms and offices, storyboarding for short films and product scenarios, creating instructional illustrations for products and illustrations for books. I love working closely with clients to bring their vision to life and help them to achieve success.
My aim with my original work is to inspire you to reconnect with nature, your raw humanity and your playful imagination. I want you to embrace your innate sense of wonder and enjoy getting lost in the artwork and short stories I am proud to share with you.
I'm inspired by things that are all around me; the beauty and innovation of nature, the serenity of the sea, the epic landscapes that stretch across every corner earth. Even something as simple as the bloom of flowers in spring. I'm also inspired by the kind soul of humanity, the variety of cultures and stories that surround me and the mystery of the epic cosmos above. In my life, I've spent a lot of time exploring the world and exposing myself to as many cultures and experiences as I can. Doing so has enriched my creative expression and has motivated me to share my experiences with my audience through art.
