Why and what I paint
“The Natural world captures my imagination. The rich, red sand of outback Australia, the azure blues of the ocean near where I live, or the naturally forming lines, textures and colours in rocks and cliffs of the Australian coastlines.
These are what inspire me to paint!
My style? Expressionism through to pure Abstract.
I don't paint realism, but rather an expression and microcosm of what I see in nature captured into abstract naturalism.
Naturally formed textures, rhythms, pattern and colour are what I look for and the materials and the layering of specialized and experimental mixed media techniques reflect this.
Combinations of inks, watercolours, acrylics, loose pigments and sometimes, Gold leaf create an 'alchemy' of intriguing textures and effects in subtle layers that create depth in each original painting."
Ocean Alchemy in Gold
"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."

“I was fortunate enough to acquire one of Olivia's pieces that spoke to me personally. In it, I saw my own struggles and triumphs, and it continues to inspire me years later each time I see it. There is a kind of ethereal light in her work that shines through no matter the subject or colors; this light comes from an emotional place rather than a coloristic or compositional effect. I believe this is the reason it emanates from all of her work: because her creativity and artistic passion radiates from herself.”
