As an artist who has been drawing and painting for years, people sometimes ask me what I art I like, or whose art I like to collect.
One of my very favorite artists is Olivia Wilder. Her paintings tell rich, colorful stories filled with a unique energy. Her ability to bring characters and places to life is absolutely original and quintessentially expressive. I have a deep respect for the experience and confidence she brings to the craft. Her emotional connections and memories are reflected in the vibrant complexities of her brush strokes.
I often find myself drawn into the work and the connections she is able to create. I’m happy to tell people I love Olivia’s work and I’m very proud to own some of her wonderful paintings.
