I AM OCEAN Solo Exhibition
Nov 18-24, 2022
"I've spent most of my life here in Australia, growing up beside the ocean. It is my passion!
My art is always evolving as I explore the tropical coastal landscapes, amazing beaches
and seas of this amazing country.
Sometimes it's the colours of turquoise, blues and greens of the ocean with splashes of pure gold, and at other times it's the rugged coastal landscapes, tropical sand dunes and sandstone cliffs that influence my work, choice of materials and techniques.
It all comes from a place of joy and exhilaration. A place of peace and freedom that I always feel when I'm beside the ocean and tropical coastal landscapes of Queensland.
This is what I aim to reflect in my art.
I invite you to explore my website and come on a journey with me to the sea!"
"Wow, wow, wow! Thank you so much for such a beautiful piece of art that I can treasure forever, made all the more special because it by you. I feel so lucky." Sunset Spectrum commission, pictured above left.

"Hi Olivia, we purchased one of your pieces about 12 years ago from a small gallery in the Kangaroo Valley in NSW. It is called Sunrise over the Escarpment (I think!).
I just wanted to pass on that it is still one of my husband's and my favourite possessions.
We just love the colours and life it brings to our home.
Anyway, this is a totally random message, but I thought you may like to hear that your work is appreciated daily!
Kind regards, Bernie."
"Olivia's paintings are so wonderfully attractive and captivating. She paints in the most vivid colours and interesting abstract forms which perfectly describe her subject and match the beautiful colours and shapes of nature so well. It is a joy to live with her work and wake up to admire each morning."
