Through her journey of artistic practice, Olivia has developed her interests within abstract painting, sculptural forms and installation. Influenced by modernist abstraction and contemporary practices, Olivia has a fascination for abstract modernist painting and neo-futuristic architectural design; exploring the illusionistic qualities of light, surface and space to investigate ideas of perception, movement and sensory environments.
