Charmaine Olivia is a self-taught fine art painter born in Southern California in 1988. She was raised by spiritual parents who began teaching her yoga and meditation when she was four years old. Charmaine began oil painting at seven years old and has been a professional artist since she was 17.
Spirituality, mysticism and mythology are strong influences in her work and in her life. She is aware that there is more to this physical world that we can see with our eyes, and uses painting as a means to explore these other dimensions of mind and thought. Charmaine Olivia is seeking to explore who we are as conscious beings in the universe, and the role color, emotion, and self-discovery play in living a harmonious life. She believes that every being is an artist in their own way, and allowing that creative spark to express itself is vital for the future world we want to create.
Her illustrations, photographs and paintings have appeared in publications, museums, galleries and private collections all over the world. Some of her clients and projects include Urban Outfitters, Lady Gaga, Hallmark, Volcom Stone, Vans Shoes, Element, Nylon Magazine and Burton.
