'SEIZE THE DAY'
Transforming Lives through Art
My name is Olivia Alexander, and I am a professional abstract artist dedicated to producing works that bring life and inspiration.
As part of my mission, I am currently auctioning off a stunning painting, SEIZE THE DAY, to raise money for a deserving community project making a huge difference in the Philippines.
I carefully crafted every stroke of the brush to create a piece that not only looks beautiful but tells a story.
I hope that by supporting my work, you will be a part of the change we need in this world.

A Community of Hope and Love
Presence Philippines, dedicated to building a thriving community that is focused on helping those in need.
We are building in the Lumina district of Lucent city.
Lumina is an area where the people have very little. A common issue for families is choosing which of their children will go to school.
Addiction and hopelessness affect the area, and our church will be a huge support for the community.
We offer various programs to support women and families, feed and teach children, and shape men and youth into leaders.
The church Youth, Men’s and Women’s groups are providing practical support and help for families, as well as regular visits and outreach in schools and communities.
Currently, our outreach Presence Kalinga (Care) is active in the community, feeding and teaching over 120 children, over two locations every Saturday.
And, our children's church is the biggest gathering of children in that part of the community every Sunday.
Our goal is to bring people closer to God, and our passion for creating a caring and compassionate community is at the heart of everything we do.
Join us on this journey today!

The World as Seen through My Canvas
When I create art, it's about capturing and expressing beauty. I do it by connecting with the natural world and allowing it to inspire me. I'm captivated by the colours, sounds and ocean rhythms. Intriguing landscape textures and naturally forming designs in nature and the emotion that this evokes.
This inspires me as an artist and so my art is a celebration of the beauty of the created world!
I use multiple layers of mixed media techniques and textures, transparent pigments in acrylic, inks or watercolour and sometimes gold leaf, to create depth and intrigue. For me, art is about adding beauty to a space and connecting with the viewer in an emotional context.
It’s a combining of the visual story between myself, the artist and the response of the viewer.
I believe art has the power to heal, uplift, and inspire!
