About the Artist:
Olivia Rose is a UK artist with both Scottish and Jamaican heritage. She has always had a passion for the arts and wanted to be an artist even from the age of five! Her love for art started with her mother who studied fashion, she enjoyed watching her mum create beautiful fashion illustrations and that’s where the love affair began!
Olivia works using traditional materials such as markers, ink,
and occasionally watercolors on watercolor paper. She is primarily a self-taught artist but studied animation at university.
Her interest in the ocean and nature has greatly influenced her work. She often studies different natural forms such as shells, mushrooms, coral and fossils then incorporating them into her work. Olivia also has a huge love for fantasy creatures such as mermaids, fairy and elves and they often make an appearance in her illustrations.
Olivia’s work has been displayed in countries such as the UK, America, China and Malaysia.
