For over 40 years of occasionally interrupted painting, Olivia has worked in a variety of media—watercolor, gouache, acrylics, oils and, recently, ink on silk fabric. As a Japanese American she focuses on distinctive cultural influences and explores technique as well as subject matter to make her work engaging: a social statement, an abstraction,a humorous piece, or the mundane with an ironic twist.
Olivia's paintings have appeared in numerous juried shows in WA, Montana, Georgia, and New York City from which a watercolor was selected for the American Watercolor Society's national traveling show. She has won many other awards too.
This artist is exhibiting at: Studio 8
